The Man City fans in the Transfer Tavern want nothing more than to see Kevin De Bruyne play at the Etihad for the rest of his career. The Belgian has become an immediate cult hero amongst our resident Citizens, with his fantastic quality on the ball making him a fan favourite.
He’s had a fantastic season so far, securing 6 goals and earning 8 assists along the way. Alongside the likes of Sergio Aguero and David Silva, he’s been a key part of what has been an unstoppable Man City attack.
The Man City brass has clearly been as impressed as the fans in the Transfer Tavern with his fine form, with details of an incredible new deal for the Belgian revealed recently by Goal. Goal are reporting that De Bruyne and Man City are edging closer to agreeing terms on a new deal, with an agreement on the valuation of his image rights the only issue remaining between the two parties.
With a new six-year deal in the offing, alongside a €10 million (£8.8 million) signing on bonus, it’s clear just how highly he is rated at Man City, and that’s a testament to just how good he has been.
Offering incredible quality through the middle of the park, De Bruyne has proven to be one of the Premier League’s best signings in recent memory.
De Bruyne’s signing was met with question marks originally, but those questions have firmly been answered this season.
He has quickly become Man City’s best player, and he’s quickly emerging as one of the Premier League’s greatest.
With this new deal, the Etihad faithful will be able to enjoy his services for some time yet.
