Man City ‘agree’ £50m deal to sign Kevin De Bruyne
Manchester City have finally agreed a £50m fee to sign Kevin De Bruyne from Wolfsburg, according to German newspaper Bild.
He will earn a staggering £7m a year after the two clubs agreed on the transfer. The Bundesliga side wanted £60m but in the end settled for £10m less, the report states.
City apparently offered an original bid of £39m but were told it was not enough and have finally upped their offer.
De Bruyne, who only joined Wolfsburg last season, has constantly suggested he could move to City this summer with him even coming under fire this month after admitting he could move on.
He was caught in a storm earlier this week when he declared he wanted to stay – but that was only after repeated the words of a presenter when being handed an award as the stand-out player in Germany last season.
Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allofs said they want the Belgian midfielder to stay but that “anything can happen” previously.
