De Bruyne left Racing Genk for Genk in 2012, but was loaned to Werder Bremen during the 2012-2013 season. De Bruyne scored 10 times in 33 matches for the Bundesliga club.
The East Fleming returned to Chelsea at the start of the season, but was given few chances to play by the Chelsea Coach José Mourinho.
With this summer’s World Cup in mind De Bruyne dearly wanted to be able to play first team football and leaving Chelsea was his only option. Wolfsburg has paid more than 20 million euro for De Bruyne, making him the most expensive player in the club’s history.
