Ora è arrivata l’ufficialità. Kevin De Bruyne ha appena rinnovato il suo contratto con il Manchester City fino al 2025. Arrivato nell’estate del 2015 dal Wolfsburg per circa 76 milioni di euro, il ventinovenne belga ha fatto la storia del club inglese e si è affermato come uno dei centrocampisti migliori al mondo.

La maggior parte di questi match li ha giocati sotto la guida di Guardiola, il quale lo ha schierato da trequartista, rendendolo letale sotto porta.

Il comunicato ufficiale e le sue parole

Kevin De Bruyne has signed a two-year extension to his current contract, keeping him at City until the summer of 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. 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”.
