Latest: Kevin de Bruyne contract talks well underway

Kevin de Bruyne and Manchester City always manage to get the best out of each other and there is a mutual reward in store for the two parties.

 

Kevin de Bruyne has been the focus of this Manchester City attack. The Belgian’s vision and passing are of admirable quality and the number of chances that he creates on an average in every game that he plays is simply outstanding. The 29-year-old has brought the best out of this Manchester City attack while expanding his own limits. Keeping this in mind and the fact that the Belgian has contributed heavily since the past few years, Kevin is all set to sign a new contract extension at the club, as per Fabrizio Romano.

The 29-year-old is a key player for Manchester City and has about two and a half years left in his existing contract. The contract signing that is expected to be announced in the coming days would keep him in the club until 2025, thus raising the probability of the midfielder finishing his career at the Etihad as a club legend. This comes in the aftermath of Pep Guardiola signing a new contract at Manchester City which only runs out in 2023.

 

It is believed that Kevin de Bruyne is representing himself and is negotiating the terms of his contract on his own. The talks seem to be going well for now. He earns about £300,000/week at the moment and that is inclusive of bonuses. His weekly wage is expected to receive a well-deserved boost.

This piece of news is only as better as it gets for Manchester City fans.

The only thing left to satisfy every Sky Blue fan is Sergio Aguero finishing off his career at the Etihad Stadium. The Argentine is a true club legend in every way and he deserves a proper farewell. He is yet to sign a new contract at the club and his existing one runs out at the end of this season. Surely, the fans will be extremely disappointed to see their record goal-scorer walk out as a free agent and finishing his career elsewhere. This current situation involving COVID-19 is a bad, bad time to leave a club and with the 33-year-old recent run with injuries, it’ll be hard to find a suitable suitor for him.

Sergio Aguero is a club legend and he deserves to bow out in style. Period.
