Kevin de Bruyne has responded to the rumours that he is close to sign a new contract at Manchester City. Last week it was suggested that City wanted to offer their star midfielder a new deal that would make him the best paid player in the club’s history. De Bruyne is currently on international duty with Belgium and he insists that while he is happy at the club, no offer has been made up until this point.
“I always told everybody I am really happy at the club and I feel comfortable so if the people at the club want to talk to me I am open to that and we will see what happens.”, De Bruyne told a news conference ahead of the Nations League match between Belgium and England. “But at the moment nothing has happened so I just get on with the way it goes.”
At the same press meeting De Bruyne was asked about the possible transfer of Lionel Messi to Manchester City. The Argentinian could leave FC Barcelona at the end of this season and it has been widely suggested that City are leading the race to sign the forward. De Bruyne isn’t interested in the rumours: “I don’t really care to be honest. If he comes it’s a good thing, if he doesn’t there is enough good players at the club who I enjoy playing with, so that is not for now.”
