De Bruyne 'only wants Dortmund move'

Borussia Dortmund general manager Michael Zorc has claimed Chelsea’s Belgium international Kevin de Bruyne “only wants to join us”.

De Bruyne is yet to make a competitive appearance for Chelsea
De Bruyne spent last season on loan at Werder Bremen

Bayer Leverkusen chief executive chief executive Wolfgang Holzhauser said a deal was in place to bring De Bruyne, 21, to the club on loan as part of Andre Schurrle’s proposed move to Stamford Bridge.

But Zorc said Dortmund had agreed a five-year deal with the midfielder, who spent last season on loan and Werder Bremen, and added: “De Bruyne only wants to join us.”

Leverkusen and Chelsea have an agreement in principle for the €20 million transfer of Schurrle and a one-year loan of De Bruyne - but Chelsea have not so far moved to confirm that.

“We have heard nothing new,” the Rheinische Post quoted Leverkusen media director Meinolf Sprink as saying.

Late last week, Holzhauser told the same paper he hoped Chelsea “stand by what has been agreed on” and hit out at Dortmund.

“Maybe we have come too close to Borussia Dortmund,” he said. “Maybe Dortmund wants to keep us down as a competitor.”

Dortmund and Leverkusen have recently battled over the signature of Bremen defender Sokratis, who eventually opted to join the Champions League runners-up.
