There has been no official announcement involving Chelsea's kevin De Bruyne, but it appears that his deal to Wolfsburg is nearly complete. A pair of credible journalists that have reliable connections to either De Bruyne or Wolfsburg are now tweeting that we can expect an announcement in the very near future:
Negotiations between #CFC & Wolfsburg on De Bruyne are going in right direction. Some important details still to clear. Deal later today?— Kristof Terreur (@HLNinEngeland) January 9, 2014
Official: As I said earlier today, they was few things to be fix before announcement. De Bruyne is now a VFL Wolfsburg player.— Philip Harmeling (@PhilipHarmeling) January 10, 2014
Neither of the pair could confirm any details of the deal, though Harmeling seems to believe it is a loan. Whether that's a loan with some sort of option to buy is uncertain, but it wouldn't surprise me if that's the case.
I have no clue about the deal. Last info I got was a loan. Whatever, we can be sure that KdB will wear a green shirt for the next year.— Philip Harmeling (@PhilipHarmeling) January 10, 2014
It sounds like we'll need to be watching for some sort of announcement tomorrow, while crossing our fingers that the Blues didn't do anything foolish. Here's hoping...
