Kevin De Bruyne set to sign bumper new contract and commit the rest of his playing career to Man City

KEVIN DE BRUYNE looks set to sign a new contract at Manchester City.

De Bruyne's legal representatives are believed to have held talks with City earlier this month.

The Times reports discussions are progressing well over a new five-year contract for the 29-year-old.

The deal would likely be De Bruyne's last and it is understood the ex-Chelsea midfielder would be happy to end his career at the Etihad.

De Bruyne was linked with a move away from the club when it looked as though City would receive a two-year ban from the Champions League.

That ruling has since been overturned and talks over a new contract for De Bruyne will be a huge boost to Pep Guardiola and Co.

De Bruyne's current deal is believed to be worth over £300,000 a week including bonuses and runs until 2023.

The Belgian joined City from Wolfsburg in 2015 for a then club-record £55million.

De Bruyne moved to deny reports he had already agreed to a new contract while away on international duty with Belgium.

He said: “I am very happy at the club, I can say now I have not spoken once to the club so I don’t know why people are saying I have already agreed to something.

“I always told everybody I am really happy at the club and I feel comfortable so if the people at the club want to talk to me I am open to that and we will see what happens.

“But at the moment nothing has happened so I just get on with the way it goes.”

De Bruyne was speaking ahead of Belgium's UEFA Nations League clash with England tonight.
