Kevin De Bruyne reveals chance to join Jurgen Klopp at Borussia Dortmund

Kevin De Bruyne, the former Chelsea midfielder, disclosed that he had a chance to join Borussia Dortmund during his time at Stamford Bridge. However, Jose Mourinho convinced him to stay with the London club.

De Bruyne says he could’ve played under Klopp

He said: “I signed for Chelsea knowing I would be loaned out the first year, and if I do really well we’ll see what happens. Went to Werder Bremen, had a really good year. But then in the summer it was a bit of a toss-up. I could’ve gone to Dortmund with Klopp at the time or stay, and Jose wanted me to stay.

“It just didn’t work out, I was maybe a little bit impatient at the time also, but I just wanted to play football. I had the confidence – I know there’s a lot of good players there and I understand how it works for the young guys. I didn’t want that situation anymore, so I pushed a little bit to get sold.”

De Bruyne’s revealing comes during his meteoric rise in the football world, having won the treble with Manchester City last season.

Many Chelsea fans may wonder why the Belgian wasn’t given the opportunity to show off his abilities at Stamford Bridge. Instead, he was sold to Werder Bremen, where he thrived before rejoining the Premier League.

Reflecting on his decision, De Bruyne admitted to possibly having been overly quick in leaving Chelsea and focused on Mourinho’s part in hindering a prospective move to join another elite coach.

Since then, De Bruyne has faced off against Klopp’s Liverpool, in historic clashes that have often decided the Premier League title chase. Their coming match at Anfield promises to be another thrilling chapter in their continuing rivalry.

While De Bruyne continues to excel, Chelsea, under new management, prepare to face Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge on Monday night, aiming to climb the league table once more.
