Kevin De Bruyne is ecstatic to be a Manchester City player until at least 2025. After his latest deal, which he negotiated himself, the Belgian wizard will be a mainstay at the Etihad campus.

Speaking to Joleon Lescott on the latest episode of the Man City Podcast, the star player spoke on how he wants the entirety of City to succeed and much more.

Let’s dive in-

“I want the team to progress,”

“Even the youth I want to help them, the women’s team – it’s important for this club to promote everything.

“I am in a position to help everybody at this club, and this is my part to play now.

“Since I was made one of the captains, I have progressed in that [leadership] part. I do fairly well. In certain areas, I can still do better.

“That’s why I am here, to help this team and the whole club get better, and that will help me in the end.

“To take a leadership role will help me evolve as a human being and in other aspects of life.”

“I didn’t know the rules about a testimonial but to get an extension at my age shows the confidence the team has in me,” he added.

“I have been here for six years and we have been pushing so many limits with the club and the progress has been unbelievable.

“The team has basically changed – everybody has gone and new players came in so it’s really nice for them to have the confidence to keep me for another four years.

“If that takes me to ten, that’s pretty special, I think.”

What a player and person KDB is. His genuine love for everything at the club is infectious.

Thankfully, he will be here for the long haul.
