Why Chelsea Should Not Fall For This Belgian Bait

The transfer market is one weird tale, players come and players go, more often than not a lot of mistakes do happen and teams try to avoid their repetitive mistakes over and over again, but some teams learn and some teams just want to do hara-kiri.

Few reports suggest that Chelsea seem to be back in the race to sign former player Kevin De Bruyne from Wolfsburg, the Belgian is having an exceptional season for the German club and has been linked with a big-money move to England with City and Chelsea chasing him. The sad reality is that he might actually end up moving from Wolfsburg, but Chelsea should really forget about signing the attacker.

No way, Jose

De Bruyne is having his most productive season at Wolfsburg and has been one of the best Bundesliga players, Chelsea seem to think he might be the answer to their attacking problems, especially with the likes of Salah and Schurrle out from the club.

De Bruyne was expected to play a lot of games under Mourinho, when the Portuguese manager came back to Chelsea in 2013, but De Bruyne was injured for quite a spell and then when he did play was rather poor for the club. Jose saw that and after just one season under him, De Bruyne was sold off to Wolfsburg where he has flourished.

Chelsea need to understand that the decision taken by Mourinho at the start of last season might have been for the best with De Bruyne going out of the club and playing for Wolfsburg, where he does not have the pressure that he would have had to face at Chelsea. Chelsea might need some attacking flair at the club, but they have Juan Cuadrado for that, he still needs time to gel and bringing in De Bruyne, an ex, would just be sending out the wrong message.

It would also be sending out the wrong message of the Chelsea transfer policy, sure they got a lot of money from the sales of Luiz, Mata, Lukaku and De Bruyne but they have also made a mistake of two, like selling Matic and the buying him for double. That actually worked because Matic ended up playing in a different role at Benfica, he became a defensive midfielder and not a playmaker as initially for Chelsea.

De Bruyne might grow and become a big time player in the future where he constant performs and then he could sign for a big club, Barcelona or Real Madrid even but moving back to Chelsea would be suicidal not only for his footballing career but also his growth and ability, as for Chelsea, there are plenty more fish in the sea as they search for that attacker that they so desperately need.
