Manchester City looking to reward Kevin De Bruyne’s loyalty with a contract extension

Manchester City are looking to reward Kevin De Bruyne’s loyalty to the club with a contract extension. The City legend has just returned from a long injury layoff and the champions intend to reward the midfielder with a new contract.

Simon Mullock of the Mirror reports that the champions intend to offer De Bruyne a deal until the end of the 2026 season. He further reports that the midfielder is attracting interest from the Saudi Pro League. Mullock adds that De Bruyne could earn £1 million per week if he moved to the Gulf State. Furthermore, Mullock reports that De Bruyne loves life at the European champions and his family calls Manchester home.

Manchester City’s intention to extend De Bruyne’s contract would be to reward his loyalty and fend off the Saudi Pro League club’s interest in his services. Ben Jacobs reports for that Al-Nassr and Al-Hilal have made contact with the camp of Kevin De Bruyne. Jacobs further reports that City would expect a fee of more than £100 million to sanction any sale of the midfielder. Furthermore, Jacobs reports that Pep Guardiola wants the European champions to extend De Bruyne’s contract with the world champions.

The Manchester City legend has just returned from injury. De Bruyne missed five months of the season as he recovered from hamstring surgery. The midfielder suffered the injury during his team’s 3-nil win over Burnley on the opening day of the season.

He returned to the pitch during the treble winners’ 5-nil over Huddersfield in the FA Cup third round. De Bruyne played a key role in Manchester City’s 3-2 win over Newcastle at St.James Park.

With De Bruyne fit it sets up well for the second half of the season for Pep Guardiola’s side. If they can sign him to a contract extension it would be massive news for the club.
