Bournemouth will look to avoid another hammering at the hands of Manchester City when they meet in the Premier League on Saturday evening (1730 GMT).
Kevin De Bruyne is a Belgian soccer player who currently plays for Manchester City, where he is vice-captain.
His club-record move to the Etihad Stadium for $75million was questioned by many after his failure to make an impact with Chelsea a few years earlier, but Man City would certainly not go on to regret their decision.
The playmaker has been an integral part of their squad, especially under Pep Guardiola, and has not only helped Man City to trophies, but he has also earned individual honours along the way.
Manchester City years
De Bruyne joined Manchester City for a club-record fee of $75million under Manuel Pellegrini, but most of his success was to come later under Pep Guardiola.
The midfielder had a strong first campaign with the club, being named Player of the Season, and also being responsible for scoring the goal which sent Man City into the semi-finals of the Champions League for the first time in their history.
He played just 38 minutes in the 6-0 FA Cup final demolition of Watford, but his goal and two assists saw him earn the man of the match award.
De Bruyne's best campaign arguably came in 2019/20, despite Guardiola's men being well beaten to the title by Liverpool.
Spell at Chelsea
He won three trophies with them, including a league title, before joining Chelsea on January transfer deadline day for a reported fee of $9.5million, though he returned to Genk on loan for the remainder of the season.
Chelsea fans were excited about the prospect of his return, but under Jose Mourinho, De Bruyne found gametime extremely limited and the midfielder has since revealed that he only ever had two conversations with his manager. He was sold to Wolfsburg for $24.5million.
International career with Belgium
De Bruyne made his debut for Belgium in 2010 and has since been a part of the country's golden generation. Playing alongside the likes of Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku, Belgium have established themselves as one of the best national sides in world football.
They reached the quarter-finals in that competition, a feat which they repeated at Euro 2016, before going an extra step in the 2018 World Cup. De Bruyne impressed throughout the whole tournament in Russia, but no performance was better than in the quarter-final victory over Brazil.
De Bruyne pulled the strings in Belgium's 2-1 win, scoring a wonderful goal from 20 yards and being named man of the match. The Red Devils were defeated in the semi-finals, though, by France, but they did go on to win the third-place playoff against England.
Kevin De Bruyne's personal life
De Bruyne has been in a relationship with Michele Lacroix since 2014 and the pair got married in June 2017. They have three children together: Mason, Rome and Suri. It was reported in 2014 that De Bruyne's ex-girlfriend Caroline Lijnen had cheated on him with Belgium team-mate Thibaut Courtois.
De Bruyne moved away from home at the age of just 14 to join Genk and spent a year with a foster family, but they did not want him to return the next year. He has since called that a turning point in his career.
Kevin De Bruyne's net worth
De Bruyne signed a new five-year deal at the Etihad Stadium in 2018, reported to be worth around $410,000-a-week, according to the Daily Mail.
Man City are looking to tie the Belgian down on a longer term contract in the future and are said to be willing to offer $480,000. His net worth is around the $32million mark and his endorsements include Nike, EA Sports and Orange.
