‘Ronaldo-esque mentality’ – Man City fans react as star man makes strong claim

The Manchester City fans in the Transfer Tavern have in awe of the brilliance on display from Kevin De Bruyne this season. The Belgian has dazzled all that have laid eyes on him and he has more than justified the £99 million value that Transfermarkt has given him. The City fans, who already love the 26-year-old, had more reasons to smile when reading what De Bruyne had to say about why he should be named the Premier League Player of the Year.

Kevin De Bruyne has been the best player in the Premier League this season. Mohamed Salah has scored the most goals and David De Gea has been the best goalkeeper, but the levels of De Bruyne have not dropped once and the Belgian maestro is yet to let his standards drop in the Premier League this season. The ex-Chelsea man has scored seven goals and assisted a further 14 so far in his 30 appearances in the league this season.

This year is De Bruyne’s third in Manchester after leaving Wolfsburg to join The Etihad just 18 months after leaving Stamford Bridge. The sale of De Bruyne will have definitely left Chelsea fans feeling embarrassed as the Belgian has matured into one of the best players in the world since leaving London. Insult was added to injury when De Bruyne popped up with a superb goal back in September as the Citizens recorded a 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge as Guardiola’s side stamped their intent over the League. De Bruyne still has seven more chances to show his doubters why he deserves the coveted Player of the Year award, but for many, he’d already won it by the turn of the year.

With that in mind, here’s our resident Sky Blues’ verdict on the playmaker’s comments:
