Manchester City are confident they will have Kevin de Bruyne until the day he retires, fending off any possible suitors with recent comments.
In 2015 when Manchester City splurged a sum of €76 million to acquire the services of the Belgian playmaker, Kevin de Bruyne, the English media jumped quickly to label him as a “€76 million reject”.
If they’d known little about the player’s capabilities, the media would have refrained from doing so. At the Etihad, KDB has grown in stature and has helped Manchester City to win multiple titles in England.
The player has two Premier League titles, one FA Cup title and four English League cups – and perhaps on route to more major trophies this season.

Currently, he is one of the best midfielders in the English Premier League because of his assisting and goalscoring abilities.
In six seasons at the Etihad, the player has played over 170 times in the EPL.
During his tenure, he has scored 39 goals and has racked up 74 assists. However, dark clouds have loomed over his stay at the Manchester club because of Financial Fair Play regulations.
As Manchester City came away with a clean chit and had very little fine to pay, the club is looking to extend the stalwart’s contract with them.
As both parties are yet to decide on his future, top clubs across Europe are circling the situation like sharks.
Transfer journalist, Fabrizio Romano, cleared up the rumors with his tweet on social media.
The tweet read that Manchester City will not accept any tempting offers for the Belgian superstar as they try to extend his contract.
