Famed transfer specialist, Fabrizio Romano has revealed that negotiations are currently ongoing with a confirmation to be expected soon.
Talks progressing between Kevin de Bruyne and Manchester City board to extend his contract. ‘Here we go’ territory expected soon.#MCFC close to complete the signing of Darío Sarmiento [17 years old] from Estudiantes. The ‘real’ fee will be €9m + add ons [potentially €19m]. 🔵

De Bruyne’s current deal is set to last until June 2023 but he could secure a deal for longer. Of course, that should come with a bump in his pay as well, seeing as how he is one of the world’s very best in his position.
The Belgian has publicly stated how he is happy at Manchester and would like to extend his stay. Previous reports even claimed that he is negotiating without an agent and all on his own.
Relationship between both parties is clearly solid. Pep Guardiola’s three-year contract extension has also given De Bruyne enough incentive to trust his City future. He is 29 years old and at the prime of his career. Hopefully, he will see the club through more silverware and the auspicious Champions League trophy.
