I would have been a bigger success at Stamford Bridge if Chelsea paid big money for me, according to Manchester City summer signing Kevin de Bruyne.
The Belgium international joined the Blues for just £7m back in 2012 and started only three Premier League games before moving to Bundesliga side Wolfsburg.
He told La Derniere Heure: "It makes a huge difference [whether a club paid a lot of money for you].”
"I would have played more at Chelsea had they paid as much for me as City did. That's the way things work in this business."
