Man City have found their Kevin De Bruyne replacement

Manchester City have found their long-time successor to Kevin De Bruyne, according to stunning reports.

De Bruyne, who's currently sidelined through injury after picking up a hamstring injury, signed a new deal at the Etihad in 2021, keeping him at the club until 2025.

The 32-year-old has been with Man City since 2015 following his move from Wolfsburg, but it appears the Blues have a plan in place for when he calls time on his legendary career.

According to @TheSecretScout_, Man City will target Jamal Musiala to replace De Bruyne.

Musiala spent a portion of his youth career in England with Southampton then Chelsea before joining Bayern Munich.

He made his professional debut back in June 2020, eventually breaking into the first-team as he made 26 appearances in his first full season at the club.

The 20-year-old is now a Bayern regular, having played 130 games for the German giants, scoring 31 goals. He scored an impressive 16 goals in all competitions last season.

He's considered one of the brightest young players in world football, with Man City reportedly looking to pounce when De Bruyne retires.

According to Transfermarkt, Musiala is valued around £87 million. But he could command a bigger transfer fee when/if Man City decide to make an official approach.

The steady rise in transfer fees over the years could see Man City potentially splash out in excess of £100 million to lure the star talent to the Premier League.
