Manchester City’s midfield legend Kevin De Bruyne plans to finish his playing career at the Etihad it has been reported. City’s midfield maestro is currently out injured until the New Year with a hamstring injury.
Phil Thomas reports for the Sun that De Bruyne has rejected advances from Saudi Arabia over the summer. De Bruyne will have one year remaining on his contract after this season. It is reported that Saudi clubs may come calling this summer. In addition, Thomas reports that De Bruyne plans to finish his career at the treble winners. He adds that City’s Belgian midfielder and his family are settled in Manchester and have no plans to move at this stage.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano also reports via his exclusive Substack column that De Bruyne has rejected Saudi interest this past summer. Romano adds that the City midfielder had offers from Saudi clubs following City’s Champions League success, but he decided to remain with the champions. Furthermore, Romano adds that in his opinion he can’t see De Bruyne deciding to move on in the January transfer window after already rejecting the Saudi advances.
Robert Lewandowski & Kevin de Bruyne received several approaches from Saudi clubs to join them this summer 🇸🇦
⛔️ Both rejected as Lewa wanted to stay at Barça, same for KdB at City.
❌ Alaba also never considered that option, only Real Madrid.
