De Bruyne has been linked with a move away from Etihad Stadium after an incredible year that made him win all the available trophies at the club level.

Despite his age, the Belgian was one of the best City players last campaign when they won the first-ever UEFA Champions League and two domestic cups to complete the historical treble season.

Similarly, he has been vital to Pep Guardiola’s side this campaign despite playing just a few matches due to the hamstring injury he sustained during the first league match of the season. The injury kept him out for more than four months.

A report by football insider says that Manchester City will consider age factors and many others while discussing a new deal with Kevin De Bruyne and that they were not in hurried to extend his contract despite the transfer speculations surrounding his future.

The midfielder joined the Cityzens in 2015, a year before Pep Guardiola took over the managerial role at the club. He has represented the club on the pitch on 370 occasions, scoring 98 goals and registering 166 assists in the process.

Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola has confirmed that De Bruyne will not be available to face Newcastle United in the Emirate FA Cup on Saturday.

“Kevin’s not ready. He already played in Anfield with some problems,” the City manager told reporters during his press conference on Friday.

“But he’s getting better. He’s not ready for tomorrow but we spoke with the manager from Belgium, Domenico Tedesco, and he decided. I’m grateful because he didn’t feel good and he could recover for the rest of the season.”
