Manchester City playmaker, Kevin De Bruyne has signed a new four-year contract worth N150 million weekly to keep him at the Premier League club until 2025.
The Belgian is regarded as one of the best midfielders in the world of football today.
The 29-year-old, who scored the opener during Tuesday’s 2-1 win against Borussia Dortmund, has been in talks with the club over a new contract for some time. He has now put pen to paper on a deal worth more than his previous £300,000 a week to become one of the Premier League’s biggest earners.
‘I could not be happier,’ he said. ‘Since joining City in 2015, I have felt at home. I love the fans; my family are settled here in Manchester and my own game has developed really well.
‘This football club is geared for success. It offers me everything I need to maximise my performance, so signing this contract was a straightforward decision. I am playing the best football of my career and I honestly feel there is more to come.’
‘Pep and I see football in the same way,’ the Belgian added. ‘Having that relationship with a manager is so important to me because our objectives are totally aligned, and we want the same things.
‘My focus now is on ensuring we have a successful end to the current campaign. Our results and performances so far have been excellent, but we need to make sure we end the season with the silverware we deserve.’
