Marin sale set up Werder Bremen deal for Chelsea's De Bruyne

Werder Bremen were able to move for Chelsea winger Kevin de Bruyne thanks to the sale of Marko Marin.

Kicker says Werder chief Klaus Allofs was able to secure De Bruyne ahead of a number of rivals thanks to the relationship struck during negotiations over Marin's sale.

De Bruyne declared: "I have a good feeling about Bremen. I want to play regularly at a high level."
