Former Chelsea midfielder Kevin de Bruyne has hinted that he may be open to a move back to the Premier League in the near future, after suggesting that he still needs to discuss his plans with Wolfsburg.

Despite being discarded as a Stamford Bridge flop, the 23-year-old has become one of the most highly rated players across the continent following an unbelievable season for the Bundesliga side. Dieter Hecking’s men were Bayern Munich’s nearest challengers in the league, and won the German Cup for the first time in their history, with the Belgian putting in a flawless display against Borussia Dortmund in the final.
Nevertheless, the Daily Mirror report that the winger is still considering a series of options, and suggested that the club’s preparations for next year may decide his fate.
“We will discuss my future, the club and me, once the season is finished,” the winger explained.
“The squad really has to be reinforced because it will be harder next season to play both the Bundesliga and the Champions League,” he said.
And while he failed to offer much of an indication of where his next move may lead, he did suggest that returning to the Premier League may be on his radar.
“If I leave, I have no preference where I go. In my head, it is 95% I won’t go to Russia or Italy. It is not my style of play,” de Bruyne explained.
“But England, Spain, France or the Bundesliga, yes. They are the best leagues. They are some very good teams. That appeals to me,” he suggested.
However, Chelsea may struggle to persuade their former player to come back. The Mirror report that de Bruyne is still confused over why things never worked out the first time around, but his relationship with Jose Mourinho could make a return difficult.
“I still don’t understand why Jose Mourinho let me leave. I never discussed it with him. I started to play and then it was finished,” he insisted.
