Manchester City informal contact to Kevin De Bruyne

Kevin De Bruyne has confirmed to Sky Sports News that Manchester City have made “informal contact” but said Wolfsburg would ultimately decide his future. The 23-year-old is also understood be the subject of interest from Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain and is remaining open-minded over his future.

Manuel Pellegrini is closing in on his first signing of the summer in Kevin de Bruyne. The Wolfsburg playmaker has confirmed that Manchester City have already made informal contact with this agent ahead of an anticipated £40m bid. Belgium international De Bruyne, who has been voted the Bundesliga’s finest outfield player of the season by his fellow professionals, has been linked with a host of clubs in recent months.

De Bruyne has established himself as one of the most coveted young footballers in Europe after a season that saw him notch 15 goals and 25 assists in all competitions. He is one of Pellegrini’s top targets as he looks to reclaim the Premier League title from Chelsea next season.

“I know there are some informal contacts but we say to everybody, if they want to do something they have to go to Wolfsburg, not to me,” said the Belgium international. “I always thought that I was going to talk to my club first when the season was over. And for me the season is not over. That starts probably next week or the week after but I will also be on vacation.”

De Bruyne has established himself as one of the most sought-after players in Europe after his outstanding performances for Wolfsburg. He provided more assists than any other player Europe’s top five league’s last season, with his total of 20 a Bundesliga record. It put him ahead of Lionel Messi on 18 and Cristiano Ronaldo with 16.

Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said that Volkswagen-owned Wolfsburg, who have secured a place in the Champions League next season after heavy investment, will not be tempted to cash in on De Bruyne.  “They are a buying club,” said Rummenigg. “The transfers of Luiz Gustavo, De Bruyne and Andre Schurrle speak for themselves. We are aware that he is under contract until 2019. There is no reason for Wolfsburg to consider selling him right now, and that’s the end of it.”

Asked whether he was surprised by Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allofs’ statement that his club would not even think about a €50 million offer for De Bruyne, Rummenigge said: “I can very clearly answer that with a ‘no.’”
