Kevin De Bruyne extends contract with Manchester City
London, Apr 7 (efe-epa).- Belgian playmaker Kevin De Bruyne has penned a contract extension that will keep him at Manchester City until at least 2025.
The announcement on Wednesday came after the English team beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in the first-leg of the Uefa Champions League quarter finals.
“I could not be happier,” De Bruyne told Manchester City’s in-house media.
“Since joining City in 2015, I have felt at home. I love the fans, my family are settled here in Manchester and my own game has developed really well.”
He added: “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.
“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.”
The midfielder — widely regarded as one of the best in the world — joined City from Wolfsburg in 2015. He has scored eight goals and provided 16 assists so far this season.
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, currently top of the Premier League, could land a host of trophies this year. The team has a spot in the League Cup final later this month and remain in contention for the FA Cup and the Champions League. EFE-EPA
