Manchester City to go after £35m Bundesliga Playmaker


Manchester City have approached Bundesliga club Wolfsburg over Belgium playmaker Kevin De Bruyne, after having watched the former Chelsea player score ten goals with 19 assists to help his club gain Champions League football next season.

Following his banner season it is not just Manchester City that wants to sign the 23-year-old, but also German giants Bayern Munich and French champions Paris Saint-Germain.

While talking to talkSPORT De Bruyne’s agent Patrick De Koster confirmed that he had been approached by Manchester City, but insists his player has still not made any decisions regarding his future.

De Koster said: “I have a meeting with Klaus Allofs [Wolfsburg’s sporting director] next week to find out what they want to do. I will know if they want to offer a Kevin a new deal or allow him to move.

“Manchester City, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain have made informal contact with me, but there have been no official offers.

“The situation has now changed with Wolfsburg qualifying for the Champions League next season, so wherever he plays next season it will be in the Champions League.

“If Wolfsburg decide to sell Kevin, then he will have a choice of clubs who can win their domestic league and challenge for the Champions League as well. The choice is his.”
