Manchester City’s stars have been linked with move aways in recent times. Not only Leroy Sane has been attached to rumors suggesting a move to Bayern Munich, but also Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus, with both linked with a move to Real Madrid.
Not it looks like neither of these players is going to play for Los Blancos, as they have placed their attention in a different asset. Belgium star Kevin De Bruyne is reportedly open to sealing a move away from England this summer and his next destination may well be Real Madrid.
Kevin has been terrific for the Citizens ever since he joined them from German side Wolfsburg a couple of years back.
He has provided a lot of good things to the Sky Blues, helping them win two Premier League titles and numerous other pieces of silverware. However, it seems like his tenure in England could be coming to an end shortly.
According to Don Balon, De Bruyne is said to be open to leaving the Premier League and moving to a different country next summer, which comes amid the same report linking him with Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid. They add that Kevin would cost any club around €150 million (£129M) if they want to land the signature of one of the best midfielders in the world.
There is no doubt that he’s evolved a lot under Pep Guardiola. He has bagged 43 goals and 75 assists in just 184 games for City during his time in Manchester. Great numbers for a player who’s also struggled with injuries in recent seasons.
Still, one imagines City would prefer not to sell the Belgian star, but if the right offer comes to their table, they won’t think twice to offload the player.
