Report: Manchester City offer 'exceptional' player new contract

Manchester City have reportedly offered Kevin De Bruyne a new contract after he rejected the Etihad Stadium club’s last proposal, according to The Times.

The 29-year-old’s current deal runs until 2023, but the Citizens are eager to tie him down to a new contract.

A report in The Times from January claimed that De Bruyne had rejected City’s initial offer and was becoming annoyed at the slow pace of negotiations.

However, City are now believed to have returned with a proposal that is said to be more agreeable to the Belgium international.

There is hope on both sides that an agreement can be reached by the end of the season, added the report.

It is understood that City’s vice-captain would get a rise from his present salary of about £310,000 a week, including bonuses.

TBR View:

De Bruyne is one of the best players in the world – “exceptional”, in Pep Guardiola’s words – and has been sensational for club and country over the years.

Therefore, it’s little surprise that City want him to stay put.

Hopefully it’ll be resolved soon and De Bruyne can see out his career at the Etihad, winning more silverware along the way.
