As silly season gets underway, one of the interesting stories to watch will be if (and where) several of CHelsea's better prospects end up spending next season on loan. The Blues have several youngsters that are probably ready for the big stage at Stamford Bridge, and many fans will be clamoring t see them given a run with the first team.
One of the most exciting of that group is Belgian Kevin De Bruyne, who spent the entire 2012/13 season in the Bundesliga at Werder Bremen. De Bruyne was in sensational form, and has been the subject of all sorts of rumors due to the high volume of top clubs with interest.
Tim Röhn spoke with De Bruyne's agent Patrick de Koster this afternoon, and de Koster had some interesting things to say about the future of the Belgian attacker:
While many in the media were quick to assume that De Bruyne was destined for another loan, it appears that his future will be in the hands of Chelsea's new manager. It's also interesting that Röhn mentioned Mourinho, but he pointed out that de Koster used his name specifically.
Röhn wasn't quite done yet though, as he had one additional thing to add to the conversation:
This is certainly interesting, but hardly anything I'd get overly excited about. Of course Mou would have interest in bringing Khedira along with him, as he's an absolutely fantastic player. He's also contracted to one of the few clubs that would have absolutely no reason to let him go, and he's certainly good enough that whomever takes over will have plenty of use for the 26-year old. While it will be worth paying attention to, I'm probably not going to get my hopes up over that potential move.
