De Bruyne sale was unavoidable, says Wolfsburg's director.


Wolfsburg's director of sport Klaus Allofs says selling Kevin de Bruyne to Premier League side Manchester City was unavoidable in the summer transfer window.

The Belgium international sealed a move from the Volkswagen Arena to the Etihad in the summer with four years to left on his contract with the Bundesliga club.

"When a player comes to you with an offer from a club willing to pay him four times as much [as he is already earning], then you've got to consider what's going through his head," Allofs told Die Welt newspaper.

"We had looked for a solution which would have allowed us to keep hold of him for at least another year, but when that was not possible, it was clear that we would sell him."
