Kevin De Bruyne Is Eyeing An MLS Move After Manchester City
He may have only recently signed a new contract at Manchester City, but Kevi De Bruyne is already planning for life after the Etihad Stadium, as one his agent has recently revealed.
The Belgian, who has inspired Manchester City to a 16 point lead over Manchester United at the top of the Premier League, put pen to paper on a new deal which will take him through until 2023 with the Citizens, but the former Chelsea and Wolfsburg man is planning on life beyond the expiration of that contract.
De Bruyne's new contract is reportedly worth £300,000-a-week and he is proving to be worth every penny with every passing week, putting in a series of scintillating performances, this season, scoring 11 goals in 35 appearances.
The 26-year-old's agent, Patrick De Koster said in a recent interview that De Bruyne has decided on a switch to America after his contract expires in five years time, having enjoyed the numerous trips he's taken to the United States in recent years.
"I think Kevin will end his career in the USA rather than in Belgium.
"He has already been to America many times on holiday, and he loves the country and its culture.
"He said goodbye to his bachelor life in Las Vegas, and we have often spoken about him ending his career in the MLS.
"He hasn't yet had any offers from American clubs, because they know it is not worth bothering as he is at the peak of his career.
"Clubs in China will probably look longingly at him, but I can't see him going over to play there.
"Did I have any contacts with Real Madrid or Barcelona? Informal contacts are made all the time, and people call me in the name of club X or Y.
"But Kevin's only desire was to remain at City. He is incredibly happy on all levels, and besides he has just bought a house near Manchester that he is renovating."
City signed De Bruyne from Wolsfburg in a £52 million deal in 2015. The 26-year-old has gone onto make 125 appearances for the club since then and will, barring a miracle, lift his first Premier League title with the Citizens in a few months time and could still complete a historic quadruple with Pep Guardiola's team.
