The Belgium international, 22, has been linked with a return to the Bundesliga with Wolfsburg reportedly interested in his services.

However, he has shrugged off the link and claimed that Mourinho has given him no reason to believe that his future lies away from Chelsea.

De Bruyne told Belgian newspaper La Derniere Heure: "I really don't worry. You make it more of a problem than I do.

"Mourinho is the boss, he chooses who plays. We do not talk about it really.

"He tells me when I do something bad, but frankly I haven't heard such negative comments."

After spending the last two seasons on loan at Werder Bremen and Genk, De Bruyne insists he is happy with his decision to remain at Chelsea and fight for a starting spot.

"I chose to stay [instead of going on loan] and I have no regrets," he added. "I continue to fight hard. My chance will come.

"I'm really not concerned about finding a solution in January. That we will have to see."
