Pep Guardiola lining up world-class replacement for Kevin De Bruyne amid Saudi Pro League transfer rumours

Pep Guardiola lining up world-class replacement for Kevin De Bruyne amid Saudi Pro League transfer rumours

Kevin De Bruyne has been linked with a move to Saudi Arabia, but Manchester City are said to have identified a replacement.

Pep Guardiola reportedly has his eyes on a replacement for Kevin De Bruyne after recent links to the Saudi Pro League.

A plethora of world-class players have moved to Saudi in recent times and it has been widely reported that De Bruyne is high on the list of SPL chiefs.

Journalist Rudy Galletti has touted De Bruyne as a top target alongside Mo Salah for the Public Investment Fund.

And earlier this week, he claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo's Al Nassr have been in contact with De Bruyne's agent ahead of a proposed transfer.

The Belgium international is currently recovering from surgery on his hamstring and was over in Abu Dhabi for UFC 294 at the weekend.

Al Nassr are hoping to set up a meeting and convince him to link up with the likes of Ronaldo and Sadio Mane.

De Bruyne joined City in 2015 and will go down as one of the club's best ever players.

He will take some replacing but according to Pete O'Rourke of Football Insider, City have their sights on Bayern Munich and Germany star Jamal Musiala.

The European champions are taking an interest in the 20-year-old and his contract situation at Bayern.

Muisala, who was in the youth ranks at Southampton and Chelsea and played for England at youth level, is contracted until June 2026.

He is said to earn around £83,000-a-week but has issues with not being a regular starter for the Bundesliga champions.

Muisala hit 16 goals and 16 assists in 47 games last season - even notching the goal which secured yet another title on the final day.

He was on target in the 3-1 Champions League win over Galatasaray on Tuesday night, having also bagged against Copenhagen.

However he has only made three starts in the league due to injuries and Thomas Muller getting the nod.

Liverpool have also been heavily linked with the attacking midfielder, who is one of hottest prospects in world football.
