Fabrizio Romano corroborates Man City Central’s Kevin De Bruyne exclusive from November

Kevin De Bruyne is closing in on a contract renewal at the Etihad Stadium just as Man City Central reported in November, with the Guardian’s Fabrizio Romano corroborating our story.

The Sky Blues’ season hasn’t started as they would have planned with Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table once again but the club’s future is safe with Pep Guardiola already having signed a new contract while De Bruyne is closing in on an extension of his own.

Last month, we reported that getting the Belgian to re-commit to the Lancashire outfit was the highest priority for Man City and with Christmas just days away, it looks as though fans are being served with a dose of the festive spirit that has been absent from a COVID-blighted year.

De Bruyne is the best midfielder in the world and while he has been playing as more of a second striker of late, there isn’t another player in the engine room that comes close to his influence in Europe.

We reported last month that City were working hard on getting De Bruyne to put pen to paper before the year was out and while a contract announcement might be delayed until early January, our source says that his renewal is a formality at this point.

Already earning £300,000 per week, KDB is set for a small bump in earnings as confirmed by Fabrizio Romano. We understand that his increase, which is also dependent on various bonuses could see his wage increase by as much as £26,000-£50,000 which would still see his salary overshadowed by Pierre Emerick Aubameyang’s £20,000,000/year payslip.

De Bruyne already has seven assists in the Premier League and only Harry Kane (10) has more.

It’s fair to suggest that if Sergio Aguero was fit this season or if Jesus, Mahrez and Sterling weren’t so wasteful, the former Genk star would be at the top of the list as he was last season.

While they still have a game in hand, City have dropped points in over half of their games this season which will make chasing Liverpool down that much more difficult but if De Bruyne can keep creating chances for his teammates, the Sky Blues’ form could improve soon.
