With Kevin De Bruyne now an ex-Chelsea player, having been sold to Wolfsburg during the January transfer window, some interesting information has surfaced in the media this morning.
It would appear that the 22 year-old had a chance to join Borussia Dortmund but any deal was blocked when, so De Bruyne claims, Jose Mourinho intervened after a reputed Chelsea move for Robert Lewandowski fell through with the twenty-five year-old striker opting to join the Bavarian giants, Bayern Munich.
Now I`m not disputing what De Bruyne has claimed but I`ve long suspected this tit-for-tat attitude has been prevalent in football, how about you?
