Cape Town - Kevin De Bruyne has hit back at Jose Mourinho's claims that he has a poor attitude in training.

The former Chelsea midfielder Kevin De Bruyne caught the attention of the Europe's elite teams this season after starring for Wolfsburg and has been tipped with a move to Manchester City.

The Belgian international has now aired his side of the story regarding his troubled time at Stamford Bridge.

“After four months, I asked him to leave." De Bruyne told The Mirror.

"I didn’t want to stay at a club where I wasn’t even playing for 10 minutes. He said it was my attitude in training? It is an excuse he can use.

“But no-one can say that as they haven’t seen me train. I don’t think that in Belgium or in the Bundesliga they have complained about this. That is the way it is. I am not angry. When I was transferred to Wolfsburg, Chelsea got their money (£15.2m). Everyone was happy.”

Manchester City will have to convince Wolfsburg to part with De Bruyne and also beat off interest from PSG and Bayern Munich.

De Bruyne scored 16 goals in all competitions for Wolfsburg this season.
