While he was certainly acknowledged as one of the best midfielders in the Premier League last season, Kevin de Bruyne has gone up several notches and staked his claim as one of the very best players in world football today.
If it had not been for Mo Salah’s incredible goal scoring run, KDB would be a shoe in for the PFA Player of the Year award. That being said, De Bruyne as been terrific for City this year, and has been the stand out player in the stand out team in the league.

KDB’s scintillating performances have certainly caught the eye of some of Europe’s biggest clubs, as the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, PSG and Bayern Munich are closely monitoring the Belgian champion.
We hear that Barcelona and Real Madrid are strongly interested in signing De Byrune after the World Cup this summer. Real Madrid are willing to offer Isco in exchange for the Belgian, something that would interest the Manchester club.

Barcelona, who are actively looking for someone to replace Iniesta, are also keen on the City player. With Rakitic also slowing down a tad bit, Barcelona need to strengthen their midfield and bring in the requisite quality to replace two outstanding servants to the club.
This is what KDB’s agent had to say about his client’s future,
“I think Kevin will end his career in the USA rather than in Belgium,” Patrick de Koster told The Sun on Sunday.

“He has already been to America many times on holiday, and he loves the country and its culture.
“He said goodbye to his bachelor life in Las Vegas, and we have often spoken about him ending his career in MLS.
“He hasn’t yet had any offers from American clubs, because they know it is not worth bothering as he is at the peak of his career.
“Clubs in China will probably look longingly at him, but I can’t see him going over to play there.
“Did I have any contacts with Real Madrid or Barcelona? Informal contacts are made all the time, and people call me in the name of club X or Y.
“But Kevin’s only desire was to remain at City. He is incredibly happy on all levels, and besides he has just bought a house near Manchester that he is renovating.”
