Real Madrid are set to make a move for Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne, according to one report in Friday’s Paper Talk . KEVIN DE BRUYNE has been sensational for Manchester City, and that has reportedly attracted the interest of Real Madrid.
The Belgium superstar has been one of City’s standout performers this season. De Bruyne has become on of the best players in the Premier League since joining City in a £54million deal in 2015.
And he has played an integral part in Pep Guardiola’s side taking an early eight-point lead in the Premier League table.
The 26-year-old has so far scored five goals and provided 10 assists in all competitions so far this season.
But it is claimed that the former Chelsea star has made it clear he wants to remain at the Etihad despite Real’s interest.
And the report goes as far as saying De Bruyne is ready to sign a new contract in the next few months to stop any more interest in him.
Paris Saint-Germain are another of the European elite reported to be keeping an eye on the former Wolfsburg man’s progress.
Real Madrid have supposedly registered their interest in signing De Bruyne, according to City fan website City Watch.
The report claims the La Liga giants have informed De Bruyne’s representatives of their interest ahead of a possible bid.
The midfielder was informed of the interest from Zinedine Zidane’s side, but he is said to be content with life at the Etihad and will not seek a move away from the club.
It is suggested that De Bruyne is expected to pen a new lucrative deal with City to fend off potential suitors.
De Bruyne will return to action for City this weekend when they face David Moyes’ West Ham on Sunday.
