Chelsea take on Swansea in the season opener with live streaming available for free from Stamford Bridge in London.
Chelsea FC are not only finding it tough going on the football pitch at the moment but also off it as they struggle to agree terms with Genk over a move for Kevin De Bruyne.
Chelsea v Swansea Match Highlights
The young Belgian attacker is keen to sort out a move to Stamford Bridge and he has made no secret that Chelsea remain a club that are interested in him and that that interest is mutual. A deal is currently trying to be thrashed out to bring the 20 year old to West London in January rather than risk waiting until the summer but both Chelsea and Genk are finding it difficult in agreeing to a transfer fee.
Whilst valuations are sketchy it appears that Genk value the attack minded midfielder slightly higher than Andre Villas Boas’ side and both clubs are currently trying to sort out the final figure so a deal can be completed as soon as the January transfer window opens.
Whilst De Bruyne has not impressed greatly for Genk during the Champions League group stages Chelsea have long admired the player and will continue to negotiate for the youngster as they look to bring in more young talent with potential to match that of their summer signing Romelu Lukaku.
