Retired At 35? Kevin De Bruyne’s Future Plan Revealed To City Fans

Kevin De Bruyne’s future plan could see the Belgian retire from football at the age of 35 and he wishes to make it happen as a Manchester City player despite the transfer speculations surrounding his current contract.

Pep Guardiola names Man City player with De Bruyne:s quality

The midfielder has had a great impact at Manchester City since he returned to the Premier League after a short period in the German Bundesliga playing for Wolfsburg.

The former Chelsea star has made 367 appearances for City and scored 98 goals with more than 100 assists in the league alone. However, at 32, his glorious football career is gradually coming to an end and he has reportedly made a plan for the future.

According to The Athletic, Kevin De Bruyne’s future plan is to extend his current contract which expires in 2025 at City, and remain at the club for the next few years before his retirement.

He planned to bow out at age 35, but this plan was before the huge offers came in from Saudi Arabia. Many clubs in Saudi Pro League have shown interest in the Belgian and a decision to abandon his plan to move to any of the clubs could earn him £59.7million per year.

It was also reported that City has set a £100 million price tag on the midfielder and a suitable offer could force the Cityzens to part way with their midfield maestro, especially due to the age factor.

Therefore, the decision to keep De Bruyne at the club solely belongs to Manchester City and how willing they are to offer him the terms he wants in a fresh contract extension should they decide to keep him.

The Premier League champions are known to offer their players above 30 short contracts. Ilkay Gundogan who was the treble-winning captain had to join Barcelona when the City were reluctant to extend his contract due to age factors.
