De Bruyne suffered blows to his knee and ankle while scoring in Chelsea's 4-1 win over a Malaysia XI in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday night.
And the Belgian, who was taken off on a stretcher before undergoing assessment, now returns to London after being ruled out of Thursday's final tour match in Jakarta.
De Bruyne wrote on Twitter: "Leaving to London tonight. Full medical check up there. Feeling ok. Hopefully a good result after the check up."
Chelsea added on Twitter: "Kevin De Bruyne will return to London overnight for an MRI, after which we'll have a clearer picture of his injury."
Following Thursday's fixture with BNI Indonesia All Stars, Chelsea travel to the United States to play Inter Milan in Indianapolis on August 1.
