20 Goals 10 Assists Winger Set To Join Manchester United For £34.9m, Will Annoy Chelsea Fans

Manchester United are currently looking for attacking reinforcements after losing the services of forwards Robin van Persie, Falcao and Nani this summer. With Angel Di Maria close to agreeing terms with French champions PSG, the Old Trafford club are targeting the signing of former Chelsea attacking midfielder Kevin De Bruyne to bolster their attacking options as per the Metro.

De Bruyne’s impressive season at German side Wolfsburg has attracted the attention of top european clubs with United’s scouting team sounding out the player to manager Louis van Gaal as a potential signing to bolster their attack ahead of the coming season. The Belgian international enjoyed an impressive campaign in the Bundesliga last season as he was at the heart of almost all of Wolfsburg’s attacking play. The Belgian created a incredible 111 chances, 20 assists and 10 league goals. He has also developed his game to be a threat outside the box as he chipped in 3 goals from long range.

Kevin De Bruyne left Chelsea in January 2014, as first team opportunities at The Bridge were hard to come by. The 24-year old has gone on to establish himself as one of the finest advanced playmakers in the Bundesliga with a high average of 63.7% forward passes.

De Bruyne’s stock has risen as he is currently valued at £34.9 million after Wolfsburg paid £18 million to secure his services last year.

A move back to England would provide him with the opportunity to repair his reputation in the Premier League and with Manchester United currently short of options upfront, he is guaranteed a lot of playing time if this move materialises.
