Manchester City have confirmed the contract extension of midfielder Kevin De Bruyne.
The 29-year-old has signed a new two-year contract which will see him at the club till the summer of 2025.
“Everyone at Manchester City is delighted with the news and we all want to take this opportunity to congratulate Kevin and wish him all the very best for the remainder of his time here,” said the club in a statement.
The gifted playmaker is excited to have signed the new deal with the English Premier League log leaders. “I could not be happier,” said De Bruyne.
“Since joining City in 2015, I have felt at home. I love the fans, my family are settled here in Manchester and my own game has developed really well.”
De Bruyne has spent five-and-a-half years at Man City.
The Belgian international has won two Premier League titles, one FA Cup and four League Cups, as well as the 2020 PFA Player of the Year award.
“This football club is geared for success. It offers me everything I need to maximise my performance, so signing this contract was a straightforward decision. I am playing the best football of my career and I honestly feel there is more to come,” he adds.
“Pep and I see football in the same way. Having that relationship with a manager is so important to me because our objectives are totally aligned and we want the same things.
“My focus now is on ensuring we have a successful end to the current campaign. Our results and performances so far have been excellent, but we need to make sure we end the season with the silverware we deserve.”
The club’s Director of Football Txiki Begiristain also stated that this is a very significant moment for the side.
“Kevin is, without question, one of the best players in world football. His performance level has been remarkably consistent since coming to City, and in the last few years he has developed into one of the game’s elite players,” explains Begiristain.
“His talent is unquestionable – but he is also a consummate professional whose dedication to Manchester City during his time here has been nothing short of extraordinary. He constantly seeks to improve, and his approach is the perfect blueprint for any young player looking to carve out a career.
“We are delighted he is our player and I look forward to watching him during his peak years here at Manchester City.”
