Global ‘superstar’ Kevin De Bruyne (32-Manchester City) is reportedly set to receive a jaw-dropping ‘astronomical’ offer from Saudi Arabia, a country that has been scooping up star players with its deep pockets. Along with this, a potential move has been rumored.
“Global ‘superstar’ De Bruyne is set to be offered an astronomical pay package by Saudi Arabia next year,” British publication Football Insider exclusively reported on Monday (June 29), adding that “while he is happy at City, one insider says he could be offered a jaw-dropping weekly wage and bonuses that would see him leave the club.”
Indeed, Der Bruyne, whose contract with City expires in June 2025, is currently attracting interest from multiple clubs in Saudi Arabia. For now, he has been ‘courted’ by Al-Nasr until recently, with some observers suggesting that a meeting will be arranged through his agent in the near future. The expectation is that he’ll hear about specific long-term projects.
Der Bruyne is arguably one of the best midfielders alive, and has been called a global ‘superstar’. A prolific workhorse who is capable of moving all over the pitch and creating chances with his precise passing, vision and creativity, he has been with City since 2015, having made his professional debut for KRC Heck in 2008, before moving on to Chelsea and Wolfsburg.
In his eight years in a City shirt, Der Bruyne has been a consistent performer, scoring 96 goals and providing 153 assists in 358 appearances. During this time, he has won numerous trophies, including five English Premier League (EPL) titles, one UEFA Champions League (UCL) title, two English Football Association (FA) Cups, and five English Football League (EFL) League Cups. 토스카지노 주소
His individual accolades are equally impressive. He’s won the EPL’s assist title four times (2016-2017-2018-2019-2020-2022-2023) and was named the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) Player of the Year twice (2019-2020-2020-2021). In 2022, he finished third in the Ballon d’Or voting, the most prestigious award in world soccer. It’s no exaggeration to say he’s a living legend.
However, Der Bruyne is now in his 30s, and there are observers who believe that his position is faltering as of late, as injuries have become more frequent. This is mainly due to the fact that there are still two years left on his contract, but there have been no concrete renewal discussions. This has led to speculation that he could be tempted to leave if he receives an offer from Saudi Arabia that he can’t refuse, such as a huge salary.
“Der Bruyne could be willing to make the move if the Saudis offer him more money and bonuses than City have offered him in the form of a contract extension,” says Football Insider, adding that “if his injuries continue to mount and his time on the sidelines becomes more frequent, we could see him leave next year with no offer of a new contract at all.”
