The Man City fans in the Transfer Tavern are delighted with the fine form of Kevin De Bryne this season…
The Belgian has really come of age under Pep Guardiola, with the manager’s quick and dynamic style of play clearly suiting the midfielder.
It’s no surprise, of course, given that he has slowly been developing into one of Europe’s best over the last couple of years. He’s always had an excellent right-foot, but beyond that, his overall game has become so much more impressive under Pep Guardiola.
This season he has been particularly efficient, and that’s something that hasn’t gone unnoticed in the Transfer Tavern.
It clearly hasn’t gone unnoticed behind the scenes at the Etihad either, with the Telegraph reporting that Man City are keen to give De Bruyne a new deal – with an offer of over £200,000-per-week expected to come his way at some point soon.
Significantly, De Bruyne himself is said to be settled and keen on extending his time in Manchester – which will come as a massive boost for the Citizens.
Signed back in 2015, the 26-year-old has now emerged as one of Man City’s most important attackers, and he isn’t a player that the club can afford to lose at present.
That, combined with his fine recent form, means that the Belgian is undoubtedly deserving of a new deal.
Pep Guardiola is building a side for the present and the future, and De Bruyne definitely fits into both of those pictures.
At 26-years-old, he’s entering the prime of his career, and Man City will be able to enjoy his best years if they are able to tie him down to a new long-term deal.
He’s clearly keen to make that happen, so an agreement is likely to be found.
