Kevin De Bruyne responds to Manchester City speculation

Wolfsburg attacker Kevin De Bruyne has been linked with a move to Premier League giants Manchester City this summer.

Wolfsburg winger Kevin De Bruyne has suggested to The Sun that he is open to joining Manchester City this summer.

According to the British tabloid, Premier League giants City are preparing a bid in excess of £40 million for the Belgium international, with German giants Bayern Munich and Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain also reported to be interested in him.

“Of course you can’t ignore it,” the 24-year-old told The Sun. “Everyone knows the teams. They all play for the title. That is not nothing.

“But at this moment I have not heard that there is a bid for me. If an offer does come, I will hear about it and how much it is — but I have not yet heard anything.”

Good signing for Manchester City?

De Bruyne struggled to make an impact in the Premier League when he was at Chelsea, managing to make just three league appearances between 2012 and 2014.

During that spell at Stamford Bridge, the Belgian was also sent out on loan to his former club Genk and German outfit Werder Bremen.

The attacker joined Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg on a permanent contract in January 2014 and has been a huge success.

The former Chelsea man scored three goals and created 50 chances in 16 Bundesliga appearances in the second half of the 2013-14 campaign.

Last season, De Bruyne scored 10 goals and created 111 chances in 34 league games, firing Wolfsburg to a second-place finish in the Bundesliga.

Signing the Belgian would be a great piece of business from City - it would certainly enhance their chances of winning the Premier League this season.
