Download Kevin De Bruyne Has Dispelled Any Doubts About His Future At Manchester City
The Blues midfielder expressed concerns about his career when City still had the Uefa ban hanging over them, saying he might have to think about what to do if that punishment had stayed in place.
But, with the ban lifted by City’s appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, De Bruyne has reiterated his happiness, both with the club and with the city.
Fresh from winning the PFA Player of the Year award, De Bruyne is the star of a new City documentary called “Made in Belgium”.
And in it he stresses how much City’s style of play is an attraction.
Manager Pep Guardiola rates De Bruyne as the best midfielder in the world at the moment, and every top club would be interested if he expressed a desire to leave.
But City have him tied up to 2023, and De Bruyne said he is perfectly happy with life with the Blues.
“I enjoy my time here, I’m very happy, my family is happy. So for me there is nothing to complain about,’’ he said.
“My now wife was pregnant at the time (we moved here), so we wanted to move to raise a kid. I think it was better to live here, to have a transfer where I could be here for many years.’
“For me, playing style is the most important. I like to play football in the way in which we do – attacking, on the floor, lots of intensity. As a player you need to find teams or playing styles that suit you.
“At the end of the day you need to enjoy what you’re doing and if you enjoy it you’re going to play better.’’
