Manchester City: change of course for Kevin De Bruyne An incredible turn for Kevin De Bruyne’s future within Manchester City.
The news is not good for Kevin De Bruyne. Injured and away from the playing field for a long time, the Belgian Red Devils midfielder receives bad news from his club.
During the opening match of the Premier League against Burnley (Manchester City won 0-3), Kévin De Bruyne was taken off on a stretcher just 23 minutes later. Due to a femoral biceps injury, the Belgian will miss several months of competition following the results of the exams. With a contract until the summer of 2025 with the Sky Blues, Kevin De Bruyne, who was in advanced negotiations with the last Champions League champion to renew his contract, could already lose this favor to continue at the club.
According to the latest information from daily Manchester City considered it appropriate to suspend the opening of contract negotiations with Kevin De Bruyne. The winners of last season’s Champions League, Premier League, and FA Cup reportedly want the Belgian to make a full recovery from his long-term hamstring injury. After that, negotiations could resume for its extension beyond 2025 at Etihad.
An important member of the Manchester City squad, Pep Guardiola has agreed to expand his strong man in the Mancunian midfield. Due to his hamstring injury, which keeps him away from the courts for a long time, Kevin De Bruyne will not be able to return to the green rectangles before the end of this year. The return of the Belgian international attacking midfielder (99 caps, 26 goals) is expected at the beginning of 2024. Despite his 32 years, Kevin De Bruyne would arouse the interest of European officials if he failed to renew his contract with the Citizens. Saudi Arabia, very active in the transfer market for several months, could take a step forward.
