Kevin De Bruyne's injury not serious, he will rejoin Chelsea in the United States

New, comments

Good news today it seems, as we were linked with a midfielder and now will get De Bruyne back

Kevin De Bruyne was forced to leave Chelsea's last friendly with a serious looking injury, and then had to fly back to London for further tests. The results of those tests are back, and it sounds as if De Bruyne's injury isn't all that serious:

This is obviously excellent news, as De Bruyne was fantastic last season and has been one of the most impressive Chelsea players this preseason. Having De Bruyne available for the season opener will be important, as Juan Mata is expected to be rested following the ridiculous Ecuador/Spain friendly just days before.

We obviously won't be seeing De Bruyne tomorrow, but it will be good to see him back in training with his teammates in the United States. Here's hoping this is the last mention of his injury, and that he picks right up where he left off as soon as possible.
