The Belgium and Manchester City star is one of the highest-paid players in the world. Boardroom breaks down the details of his current contract.
Manchester City have become synonymous with winning English soccer. At the forefront of that success is a seven-year relationship with manager Pep Guardiola and arguably the world’s best midfielder, Kevin De Bruyne. While his dominance has reigned supreme in the Premier League, KDB has yet to replicate his domestic success internationally.
A third-place finish at the 2018 World Cup and a crashout in the quarterfinals of EURO 2020 are fresh in the minds of Belgium supporters; any future success at the 2022 World Cup and beyond depends in no small part on the decorated KDB coming up huge.
Fortunately, due to the long-term contract security with Manchester’s Sky Blues, the Belgian midfielder and five-time Premier League champion will be free of the pressure and uncertainties that come with the January transfer window.
With that in mind, let’s examine all the Kevin De Bruyne contract and salary particulars as things stand at Man City.
