De Bruyne wants to stay at City

Belgian in contract talks himself with club

It seems Manchester City’s prized possession is keen to continue his career with the club long term.

Midfielder Kevin De Bruyne confirmed this weekend he is in talks with the team on a new contract.

Following his nations 2-0 win over England Sunday, the Belgian gave us an update on the contract negotiations.

Speaking to Belgian TV station VTM Nieuws De Bruyne says: “I am at a good club [with] good owners.

“We are a bit in talks – not advanced. At the moment I am doing the talks myself.

“I would like to stay with the club, so it’s easy. If I didn’t want to stay, it would take someone to mediate. But when you want to stay, it’s not so difficult.”

The 29-year-old moved to City from German club Wolfsburg in 2015, making 232 appearances for City thus far.

Earlier this year De Bruyne confessed that if the club’s two-year European ban had been upheld he would’ve had to take a hard look at his future with the team.
