Kevin De Bruyne 'Close to Agreeing' New Manchester City Contract

Kevin De Bruyne 'Close to Agreeing' New Manchester City Contract

His decision to pen a new deal is a huge blow to Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Al-Mubarak was keen to reward De Bruyne for his stunning progress under Pep Guardiola.

De Bruyne is expected to more or less double his current wages and earn around £200,000, but with a series of bonuses.

The former Monaco defender has made just five appearances for City this term after rupturing knee ligaments during a Premier League clash with Crystal Palace, but again, we must stress that this hasn't ruined his fun.

De Bruyne, 26, has firmly established himself as one of the world's best midfielders and been a driving force behind City opening up an 11-point lead at the top of the Premier League, and talks over a new contract are now at an advanced stage in what promises to be a welcome Christmas present for Guardiola.

De Bruyne admits he is loving life in Manchester and was never been tempted to leave. The team is going in the right direction and that's also important.

The Belgian has four years left on the contract he signed after moving from Wolfsburg for £55million in 2015, but City want to replace it with a more lucrative long-term deal.

City also expect to agree a new contract with Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho, whose deal expires at the end of the season.

Greater Manchester Police have confirmed they are investigating an incident of alleged racially aggravated assault on Manchester City's Raheem Sterling before Saturday's 4-1 win over Tottenham. Mendy uploaded a picture of him grappling with a police officer after it kicked off at Dean Court with the caption: "When you still havent paid for that cheeky Nando parking fine".
