Bremen Watchful On De Bruyne

Werder Bremen are keeping a close eye on Kevin De Bruyne’s situation at Chelsea.

The young Belgian was miffed to have missed out on the Blues squad that beat Steaua Bucharest in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

He has endured patchy form so far this season, and manager Jose Mourinho was sending him a blunt message to improve if he wants to play.

De Bruyne was a star for Bremen on loan from Chelsea last season, and the Bundesliga club had hoped to sign him or loan him again this time around.

But Mourinho had promised the midfielder regular game time this season, and insisted he return to the Bridge.

However, De Bruyne has started just two Premier League matches so far, with Chelsea’s jam-packed midfield making for stiff competition, even for established stars like Juan Mata.

And so Bremen have put the feelers out, suggesting that if De Bruyne does not play his way into Mourinho’s plans, they will offer him a safe haven when the transfer market opens again January.

"Should Kevin be unhappy, we are an eager first contact,” Bremen's general manager,Thomas Eichin, toldBild

"I am in contact with his agent and am informed about Kevin's situation at Chelsea."

"I know Kevin, if he doesn't play it is certainly a big problem for him.

"Let's wait and see what happens in the winter. We will be ready, if there is a possibility, to get him."
