It has been reported that Marcel Schafer is supremely confident that Kevin De Bruyne will not hurry back to the Premier League.
The Belgium international has been linked with a potential summer move to either Manchester City or Manchester United but teammate Schafer believes he will stay put at the Volkswagen Arena after experiencing a tough time at Chelsea prior to his move to Wolfsburg.
“I think that our chances [of keeping De Bruyne] are really good,” defender Schafer said of De Bruyne who has 14 goals and 21 assists in all competitions this season.
“He has already experienced not getting so much time on the field at Chelsea, which is top club in Europe.
“And that is why I think the best thing for him would be to stay for minimum one more year at Wolfsburg.
“Next year he could play Champions League here and win titles with us.
“If you want to win titles you need extraordinary players. And you really have to say that Kevin De Bruyne is at the moment the best player in the Bundesliga not only because of his stats.
“You can see that in every single game. And we’re really, really happy to have him and to keep him till the next season or maybe a little bit longer.”
