Genk star holds out for transfer
Chelsea are still in the hunt for Belgian star Kevin de Bruyne, according to the man himself. The Blues were keen to take the talented 20-year-old to Stamford Bridge during the summer but refused to meet Genk's asking price. The failure to agree a fee caused the deal to collapse, leaving De Bruyne with the Belgium league runners-up for at least a few more months. Now the midfielder has revealed Chelsea will be come back for him before the start of next season. He said: "Chelsea are still interested in me and already have a plan in place for me. Staying at Genk for another season is not an option for me. Chelsea were serious about signing me but maybe Genk’s asking price was too high."
