De Bruyne open to extending his stay at Man City 


Belgian international Kevin De Bruyne says he is willing to extend his stay at Manchester City but reveals that talks over a new contract have yet to take place.

According to British media, the Man City midfielder is closing to penning a new five-year extension with the former English Premier League champions.

De Bruyne has stated that he is enjoying his football at the Manchester-based outfit as he has won two PL titles and an FA Cup as well as several individual accolades, since his arrival from VfL Wolfsburg in 2015.

“I am very happy at the club, I can say now I have not spoken once to City, so I don’t know why people are saying I have already agreed to something,” said De Bruyne as quoted by Reuters.

“I always told everybody I am really happy, and I feel comfortable, so if the people at the club want to talk to me, I am open to that and we will see what happens.

“But, at the moment, nothing has happened, so I just get on with the way it goes,” added the midfielder.

Meanwhile, Man City have been linked with bringing Barcelona star Lionel Messi to the Etihad with the club’s chief operating officer Omar Berrada insisting that they have the financial muscle to pull off the move.

“If he [Messi] comes, it’s a good thing, if he doesn’t, there is enough good players at the club who I enjoy playing with,” concluded De Bruyne.
