Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says his side made the right decision to sell Kevin de Bruyne as the Belgian - who is set to join Manchester City this summer - didn't want to compete.

The Citizens are close to sealing a deal with Bundesliga side Wolfsburg for the 24-year-old, who left Stamford Bridge in 2014.

"With De Bruyne, if you have a player knocking on your door and crying every day he wants to leave, you have to make a decision. At that time, Chelsea did well," said Mourinho.

"If De Bruyne stayed here, not happy and not motivated, and we'd sold him after a year, we'd have got less - 50 per cent less than we sold him for.

"He was not ready to compete. He was an upset kid, training very bad."
