Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has signed a two-year contract extension that will keep him at the club until 2025.
The Belgium international, whose existing deal was due to expire in 2023, is 30 in June and now looks set to see out most of the remainder of his career at the Etihad.
De Bruyne has had a glittering spell since joining the club from Wolfsburg in 2015, winning seven major trophies, which could become 11 by the end of the season if City are successful in their hunt for a quadruple.
However, ominously for the rest of Europe, he reckons the best is yet to come for himself and Pep Guardiola’s team.
“I could not be happier. Since joining City in 2015, I have felt at home,” he said.
“I love the fans, my family are settled here in Manchester and my own game has developed really well.
“Signing this contract was a straightforward decision,” he said.
“This football club is geared for success. It offers me everything I need to maximise my performance.”
The Belgian has again been instrumental for Pep Guardiola’s side this season as they chase an unprecedented quadruple.
Despite his campaign being interrupted by injuries, De Bruyne has scored eight goals and provided 16 assists in 33 appearances.
He scored the opening goal in Tuesday’s Champions League quarter-final first leg win against Borussia Dortmund and played a part in creating the late winner for Phil Foden.
The industrious midfielder has won two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the League Cup four times since joining City from Wolfsburg in the summer of 2015.
