Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has extended his Man city contract until 2025.
The Belgian has spent five-and-a-half years at the Etihad, a period which has seen him establish himself as one of the world’s finest creative players.
It’s also been an era of sustained success, with De Bruyne winning two Premier League titles, one FA Cup and four League Cups, as well as the 2020 PFA Player of the Year award.
“I could not be happier,” De Bruyne said.
“Since joining City in 2015, I have felt at home. I love the fans, my family are settled here in Manchester and my own game has developed really well.
“This football club is geared for success. It offers me everything I need to maximise my performance, so signing this contract was a straightforward decision. I am playing the best football of my career and I honestly feel there is more to come.
“Pep and I see football in the same way. Having that relationship with a manager is so important to me because our objectives are totally aligned and we want the same things.
“My focus now is on ensuring we have a successful end to the current campaign. Our results and performances so far have been excellent, but we need to make sure we end the season with the silverware we deserve.”
According to reports, the 29-year-old attacking midfielder negotiated his contract without an agent.
He did all the negotiations by himself in person with the help of his dad and lawyer virtually (from Belgium).
Kevin De Bruyne is aiming for Champions League glory. The unique thing about the deal: he did most of the talks himself, face to face in Manchester, with his dad and lawyers as helpline (supporting him from Belgium).
