Manchester City Superstar Eyes Contract Extension Despite £100 Million Exit Talk

Manchester City might face the possibility of one of Pep Guardiola’s key players seeking a new contract in the coming months, despite reported interest from Saudi Arabia.

Kevin De Bruyne, the club’s vice-captain, is set to enter the final year of his contract at the end of the current season. So far, there haven’t been any clear signs of contract negotiations or intentions to extend from Manchester City’s side.

Despite facing injury earlier in the season and missing significant playing time, De Bruyne has maintained his exceptional performance standards since returning to the field in January.

While there’s been speculation about De Bruyne’s ability to sustain top-level performances for an extended period, there’s reportedly growing interest from Saudi Arabia in luring him and his family to the Middle East.

However, reports suggest that De Bruyne is interested in continuing to play at the top level for a while longer, amid ongoing interest from the Saudi Pro League. He reportedly aims to secure a new deal to extend his stay at Manchester City, where he has been since 2015.

But there seems to be a potential hurdle to a new deal, similar to what former captain Ilkay Gundogan faced before leaving for Barcelona on a free transfer. Manchester City may not be too keen on offering multi-year contracts to aging players, which could be a factor affecting negotiations.

In response, Manchester City is reportedly preparing for all eventualities and remains open to signing a player to succeed De Bruyne in the future, whether he decides to move away this summer or at a later stage.

Amidst these discussions, the future of Pep Guardiola, whose contract is also nearing its end, remains a point of interest. While City officials are relaxed about talks with Guardiola, any incoming signings may consider the coach’s future as well.
