City fans here in the Tavern have their attention firmly focused on one player in particular, with the hope of tying this man down to a long-term deal.
The Citizens scattered all around the blue half of Manchester have fallen in love with one of their star men this season, Kevin De Bruyne.
Indeed, the Belgian wizard is one of the world’s greatest players, and has been the star of the show for this steamrolling Manchester City side this season. Any team given the luxury of having the attacking-midfielder in their side is going to be successful, with a Premier League title looking inevitable.
As if City supporters weren’t in high enough spirits, their days were made even better when reports in The Times suggested that Pep Guardiola is set to offer De Bruyne a £200,000 a week contract that would see him at the Etihad for another 6 years.
Guardiola has never been shy of splashing the cash during his time in Manchester, and doesn’t look frightened to make the Belgian the 5th highest paid player in the Premier League. Our Landlord here in the Tavern believes that this is a player that City should tie-down at all costs.
So without further ado, here’s a look at TWO reasons as to why this would be the deal of the year for Manchester City.
