Premier League giants, Manchester City captain, Kevin De Bruyne has signed a new contracted with Cities until 2025.

De Bruyne, 30, who scored the opener last night game against Dortmund, has been conducting the talks himself alongside two lawyers.

He put pen to paper on Monday on a deal worth more than his previous £300,000 a week before bonuses and cements him as one of the Premier League’s biggest earners.

The news serves as a major fillip for City and the central midfielder is understood to have been given assurances of the club’s plans as they strive to win a first Champions League crown.

De Bruyne will hit a decade at the Etihad Stadium if he fulfils his latest new contract – mirroring the longevity of Sergio Aguero, David Silva and Vincent Kompany.

‘I could not be happier,’ he said. ‘Since joining City in 2015, I have felt at home. I love the fans; my family are settled here in Manchester and my own game has developed really well.

‘This football club is geared for success. It offers me everything I need to maximise my performance, so signing this contract was a straightforward decision. I am playing the best football of my career and I honestly feel there is more to come,’ he said.

De Bruyne was crowned PFA Player of the Year last season after equalling Thierry Henry’s record number of assists in a league campaign.

A new deal for De Bruyne was first mooted 13 months ago but the player has remained relaxed through negotiations.

‘Pep and I see football in the same way,’ the Belgian added. ‘Having that relationship with a manager is so important to me because our objectives are totally aligned, and we want the same things.

‘My focus now is on ensuring we have a successful end to the current campaign. Our results and performances so far have been excellent, but we need to make sure we end the season with the silverware we deserve,’ he concluded.
