Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne said he has entered into negotiations with his English Premier League club to extend his contract. The Belgian has a contract until 2023, but the 29-year-old, who joined from Wolfsburg in 2015 for 44 million pounds ($ 72.77 million), wants to stay longer.
“I’m happy in Manchester,” De Bruyne told a TV station before Belgium’s 2-0 win over England in the European Nations League on Sunday night. I am in a great club with great owners. ”
He added, “We entered into some non-advanced negotiations. At the moment I am doing the negotiations myself. ” He continued, “I would like to stay in the club, so it is easy.” He pointed out that “if I did not want to stay there would be a need for a mediator.” But when you want to stay, it is not difficult.
De Bruyne won the Premier League title twice with City, and won the Professional Players’ League award for best player last season after scoring 13 goals and equaling a record by making 20 goals in one season.
