Kevin De Bruyne Set to Renew Man City Contract Despite Reported PSG Interest


Manchester City and Belgium midfielder Kevin De Bruyne looks set to put pen to paper on a new contract extending his stay at the Etihad putting to bed rumours of interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

De Bruyne has enjoyed a brilliant start to the season, Manchester City are top and undefeated in both the Premier League and their Champions League group, while also helping his country qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The Belgian has seen his stock rise since Pep Guardiola took over from Manuel Pellegrini in 2016 and now looks set to stay in Manchester past his current contract end of 2021, according to Goal.

Rumours, however, have persistently linked the 26-year-old Belgian with a move to Paris, both from his time at Wolfsburg and at Manchester City.

Desperate to assemble a squad capable of winning the Champions League, PSG eyes De Bruyne as a key signing that would complement the recent record-breaking signing of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

At this stage, it seems as though the Ligue 1 giants will miss out on signing the Belgium forward, as Manchester City, according to the report, believe a deal to keep their star man is 'very close', that could see him be paid in the region of £250,000 a week.

Kevin De Bruyne has earmarked a fearsome reputation since his record-breaking move to Manchester City from Wolfsburg for a fee of £55m.
