Manchester City fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relays reports that claims talks between the club and the representatives of Kevin De Bruyne over a contract extension will start next month.
The Belgium international joined City from Wolfsburg in 2015 and has made 227 appearances for the Manchester side in all competitions, scoring 58 times and contributing 90 assists in the process.
De Bruyne’s existing deal with Pep Guardiola’s side is due to run until June 2023 but according to Fabrizio Romano
speaking on a recent episode of the Here We Go
podcast, the Citizens will be offering Kevin De Bruyne who is ‘absolutely happy’ at the club, a new contract in the near future, in order to fend off interest from Real Madrid.
He said: “Manchester City hope that Real Madrid won’t go for him next summer because if Real Madrid go for a star, they [will] consider Kevin De Bruyne.
“At the moment, there is nothing [between] his agents [and] Manchester City. They want to extend his contract [and] the direct talks with the agents of Kevin De Bruyne about his contract will start next month. So, [in] November, Manchester City and the agents of Kevin De Bruyne will start to talk about his contract.
“Manchester City want to keep the player, Kevin De Bruyne is absolutely happy. He had some difficult days when Manchester City had the problem with not playing [in] the Champions League for two years – [that] was terrible for him. But then, everything was sorted, so that’s why now Kevin De Bruyne is ready to talk with Manchester City about his contract.”
In reaction to the report shared on Twitter by Man City Xtra, many Man City fans have expressed their thoughts and opinions.
