Belgian and Manchester City vice-capatin Kelvin De Bruyne has signed a new contract that will keep him at the Ettihad until 2025.
Last season’s Premier League Player of the Year has signed a new four year contract extension with the Cityzens which will see him turn 34 years old by then.
The Belgian had an existing two-year contract but the club wanted to tie him down to ward off interests from other clubs for their prizeless asset.
Kelvin De Bruyne expressed his delight in his contract extension and revealed his love for Pep Guardiola, he said;
“I could not be happier, since joining City in 2015, I have felt at home,” De Bruyne said after his contract was confirmed. “I love the fans, my family are settled here in Manchester and my own game has developed really well.
“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.
“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” he concluded.
The 29 year old has scored 5 goals and assisted 11 times in 24 league appearances so far for Manchester City in the ongong seaoson campaign.
