Kevin De Bruyne pens new Manchester City deal, extends stay until 2025

The Belgian assist king has committed his long-term future to the current runaway Premier League leaders.

Less than 24 hours after netting for Manchester City in their victory over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, Kevin De Bruyne has declared his loyalty to the club by signing a two-year contract extension. The new deal will keep him at the Etihad until 2025.

De Bruyne has won two Premier League titles, four League Cups and an FA Cup since joining from Wolfsburg in 2015.

He looks set to add to his collection this season with Man City still in with a chance of winning historic quadruple.

He also took home the PFA Player of the Year award for his impressive displays in the 2019/20 season. That campaign saw him equal Thierry Henry's record of registering 20 assists in a Premier League season.

The Belgian said the decision to extend his contract was never in doubt, with he and his family having settled well in Manchester.

De Bruyne also highlighted his relationship with manager Pep Guardiola as being a key part of his decision.

"Since joining City in 2015, I have felt at home. I love the fans, my family are settled here in Manchester and my own game has developed really well.

"Pep and I see football in the same way. Having that relationship with a manager is so important to me because our objectives are totally aligned and we want the same things.

"My focus now is on ensuring we have a successful end to the current campaign. Our results and performances so far have been excellent, but we need to make sure we end the season with the silverware we deserve."

De Bruyne will be back in action on Saturday when Man City face Leeds United in a lunchtime kick-off.
