Manchester City football coach Pep Guardiola expects midfielder Kevin De Bruyne to sign a new, improved contract and connect his future with the club for many years to come. However, the current negotiations have stalled.
However, this may not be a problem, as the 29-year-old Belgian has a contract valid until 2023. The City leadership has long ago offered him a new, slightly improved contract, and now "quiet tactical chess" is being held about its ultimate financial attractiveness. The English press has come up with speculation that the first increase in De Bruyne's salary from the current £ 280,000 per week was "not very satisfying" the player.
But the Spanish coach "Citizens" is completely calm. "I'm pretty sure he'll stay. But we have to respect the whole process. I'm not watching it because I haven't spoken to Txiki director Begiristain about it. But Kevin knows how much we want him and how we admire him not only as a player but also as a personality and "Of course he's very important to the club. I'm not worried. Ultimately, of course, it will be his decision," the Guardiola was quoted as saying by AFP.
