Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne has revealed that he would like to stay on at Etihad.
The 29 year old Belgium international is confident of extending his contract with the Cityzens, claiming that it is a ‘good club’ with ‘good owners’, after he led Belgium to a 2-0 win over England.
Speaking to Belgian TV station VTM Nieuws, De Bruyne said: “I am at a good club [with] good owners.
“We are a bit in talks – not advanced. At the moment I am doing the talks myself.
“I would like to stay with the club, so it’s easy. If I didn’t want to stay, it would take someone to mediate. But when you want to stay, it’s not so difficult.”
Former Barca legend Xavi also claimed De Bruyne to be currently the best midfielder in the world – having been helped by Pep Guardiola to achieve so.
“Kevin de Bruyne, from Manchester City, seems to me of another level, brutal, he is able to make a difference. He is the best midfielder in the world and relatively young,” Xavi told Qatar Airways.
“Pep is the best manager in the world. He has given a twist to our sport. He is very good for what he transmits and his leadership ability. In addition, the way he convinced us, he is very good.”
