Kevin De Bruyne Signs Contract Extension To Stay At Manchester City Until 2025

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has signed a two-year contract extension committing him to Manchester City until the summer of 2025 and potentially stretching his stay at the Etihad to a decade.

The 29-year-old Belgian was previously on around £300,000 a week at City and is believed to have agreed a small increase and was eager to stay in Manchester following Pep Guardiola’s new deal and has represented himself in talks with the Etihad club which began back in October

The former Chelsea man said “I could not be happier,” he added that since joined Man 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.”

Since joining the club from Wolfsburg in 2015, De Bruyne has had a glittering spell, winning seven major trophies.

De Bruyne is on the brink of a third Premier League title but is desperate to win the Champions League – the one club trophy missing from his CV.

The midfielder who will be 30 by June said “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.

“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.
