Hecking: De Bruyne will not leave Wolfsburg for Bayern

The former Chelsea man has caught the attention of teams such as FCB and Manchester City, but his current club are confident he will stay put

Wolfsburg coach Dieter Hecking does not fear losing star player Kevin De Bruyne to Bayern Munich at the end of the season.

The Belgium international has been in sublime form in 2014-15, scoring 10 goals in 29 Bundesliga appearances, while creating 17 more.

De Bruyne’s fine performances have reportedly attracted the interest of Bayern Munich, while Manchester City are also keeping a close eye on the 23-year-old’s development.

Nevertheless, Hecking is confident De Bruyne will realise Wolfsburg are the right club for him at this stage of his career and expects the former Chelsea man to turn down Bayern if the reigning German champions come knocking.

“Bayern can make an approach for De Bruyne if they want,” Hecking told Bild.

“But Kevin has the peace he needs to mature and continue his development here at Wolfsburg.

“I think that he realises it will be good for him to play Champions League football with Wolfsburg and to show that he can also deliver the goods at this level.”

De Bruyne has a contract with Wolfsburg, who currently sit second in the Bundesliga, until June 2019.
