Manchester City are closing in on a Kevin De Bruyne contract renewal after a renewal for Pep Guardiola was announced yesterday, sources close to Man City Central report.
The club’s official website announced yesterday that Pep Guardiola has put pen to paper on a new two-year deal that will see him remain at the Etihad until at least the summer of 2023.
His signature is arguably more valuable than that of any potential target the Cityzens might have and yet the Manchester City board are not standing still, congratulating themselves but rather working hard on handing a new contract to the second most important person at the club.
Kevin De Bruyne.
Last season might have been one of major disappointment for Manchester City but the personal accomplishments of De Bruyne didn’t go unnoticed as he won the PFA Players’ Player of the Year after his 29 Premier League goal contributions.
City are now acting fast, according to Man City Central sources, and will look to announce a renewal of De Bruyne’s contract before 2020 is over which might be one of the very few positives to come from a long and trying year.
His current deal expires in 2023 but City want to extend his deal until 2025 which, if he stayed for its duration, would see him leave as a 34-year-old.
Securing his services for another four years would be a real sign of ambition from a side that hasn’t quite been at its glittering best over the last year.
