He was playing in the '4' of a 4411 for Genk in CM and so yes he could play in the double pivot, just has to develop the defensive side of his game which he does have. The double pivot is also the best place to utilise his skills such as his great long passing. He's versatile though and can play in at least 3 positions

what about his pace? seems lost in the crowded midfiled in 4231. in 4411 was he on wing?

but overall mightyblue i just want him hear and used as supersub especialy cuz of rumors now malouda wants out.

For Christ's sake, how many times will we have to go through this...?! Hazard earns 540 000 fucking EUROS per month, which does 135k euros per week = £116k at the current exchange rate. All French-spe

The only way KDB is gonna get back in the Chelsea lineup is by actually playing well, something he hasn't done since this summer.

I stayed away from this topic as long as I could — and hopped to do so for the upcoming months — but I am too bothered by what's going on in this topic. And, Choulo, if I'm quoting you on this, it's n

Exactly. If Malouda is willing to leave, then De Bruyne should definitely stay as a backup CAM, LW.

Such a brilliant prospect, deserves an oppertunity - especially if we are letting SloMo go (huh, that rhymed!!) would rather have someone like him here then someone of Florent's 'quality'.

Pace isn't his best asset though, its the way he uses the ball so intelligently and can pick out a pass. He was CM in Genk's 4411 and i think he'll be a top player, but i want to see him playing week in week out for a team rather than the odd game here and there. Looking forward to seeing him in pre season

Either Modric isn't getting 14 or Modric might not even come at all... which is probably the most likely. Happy to see KDB will get a chance to compete for a place in pre season, hope he is part of the squad this season.

I am too excited about this guy. Don't get me wrong I am very, very excited to see Eden Hazard and quite excited for Marin but something tells me that this fella is going to be an excellent player for us. He has incredible ball control and vision. I really think he will surprise a lot of people in the coming years!

I honest to god will kick a small animal if he is sent on loan and not given a chance in the first team. Its obvious this kid has talent, can play on the wings, behind the striker, even in Central midfield, what more do you want?

DE BRUYNE GEARING UP

Unlike the other new signings at Chelsea, Kevin De Bruyne has not been sampling Cobham for the first time, having been at the training ground in February to complete his transfer from Genk.

Upon signing the deal, the Belgian international was immediately loaned back from where he came, helping his former club to a third-place finish in the Jupiler League.

Looking back on his one day at the training ground on the last day of January, a day on which the first team were away in action at Swansea, De Bruyne says it did not matter there were not so many people there to greet him.

'No, for me the most important thing was just the signing. I also had to leave quickly to get back to Belgium because I had games to be playing, and now I have met everyone it is good,' said the 21-year-old. 'Since I have been here for pre-season everything is fine, the club has taken very good care of me and has organised everything perfectly to make it easy.

'After I went back the club called me a couple of times. They changed the manager but I have spoken to people here and I know scouts have been watching in Belgium as well.'

His English mother means De Bruyne can speak fluently in the tongue of his new country, making it easier for him to settle, and he has already been helping Eden Hazard with the language. It also helps to have another familiar face already here, in the form of international team-mate Romelu Lukaku.

'I know a couple of people here already so it's quite good for integration, I don't see there being any problems.

'I know Eden very well, and for a long time. I played with him for the national team and we are the same age so we played together when we were 18, 19.

'Marko Marin is also here and we are all young, so it makes it easier to get to know each other. We also play the same style of football which is good for us, and we will find our way together.'

The next step in the pre-season process will be travelling to America. Although a new experience, the tour holds no fear for the relaxed De Bruyne.

'I have spoken to Roberto Di Matteo a couple of times and now we go to America on Saturday which is very exciting,' he said.

'I've been on tours but never anything so big to America, with Genk normally it was to Turkey or somewhere like that - you don't play in front of so many people - but it will be fine. I never played in front of 60,000 people yet but it doesn't worry me.'

Experience of America is also limited, but the winger has at least some experience of life stateside, and has taken plenty from his favourite TV show.

'I have only been to LA, and I liked it a lot,' he smiled. 'I am a fan of Entourage which is a very good show but now I am hoping to see some more of the American cities we are visiting. I like to travel a lot so I am looking forward to it.'

I'll try and find the source again as I can't remember where I read it, but I saw on some German site that Schalke want to take him on loan.
