Kevin de Bruyne was touted to sign a new contract at Manchester City which would keep him in the club at least until 2025.
Everything seemed to be going well for Manchester City fans until rumors of Kevin rejecting Manchester City’s first offer began to circulate. It was believed that the Cityzens deliberately offered a low-sum contract to fund their dreamed Lionel Messi move. However, as things stand, sports journalist Fabrizio Romano has provided a much-needed update on the situation and these rumors can be dismissed as hoaxes.

Here is Fabrizio Romano’s tweet regarding KDB:
There’s no problem for Kevin de Bruyne new contract, just a matter of time (and details). He’s staying and he’ll extend his agreement with #mcfc in the next months.
Pep Guardiola confirmed the info again today: “I’m not worried. I’m pretty sure that KdB will stay”
The transfer guru has cleared the air surrounding the KDB situation and has put the facts out in the open. He acclaimed that there are no issues surrounding Kevin’s contract talks with Manchester City and an official announcement can be expected in the coming months. The talks have been proceeding smoothly and both the parties involved are extremely confident of their efforts coming to fruition. Manager Pep Guardiola stands confident about his stalwart’s future at the club. This is what Pep had to say about Kevin de Buryne’s future:
“I’m pretty sure that he will stay but at the same time we have to respect the process.
I don’t know what’s going on because I didn’t speak with Txiki [Begiristain, Man City director of football] but he knows how we perceive him – not just as a football player, but as a person, how important he is for the club. But I’m not worried.
At the end it’s his decision and hopefully it’s going to finish well.”
It is clear that Pep is in the dark about the contract talks but is pleased with the signs that are on offer.
Another cause of concern for the Sky Blue fans will be the situation of Sergio Aguero. The Argentine has hardly featured this season due to injuries and his contract expires at the end of this season. There have been no indications of renewal from either of the parties and it seems that our record goal-scorer might well be on his way out as a free agent at the end of this season. Perhaps, a two-year extension would be best for the striker as the fans would absolutely love it if their beloved goal-scorer finished off his career in front of them and at the Etihad Stadium.
