Report: Manchester City want at least £100m to even consider offloading ‘special talent’



Manchester City reportedly demands a minimum of £100 million before considering the sale of “special talent.”Due to Saudi Arabia’s interest, Manchester City would purportedly demand a minimum of £100 million for Kevin De Bruyne in exchange for the Belgian.

City has welcomed back De Bruyne into action after he missed nearly five months on the sidelines due to a hamstring injury.

A couple of weeks ago, De Bruyne returned against Huddersfield Town in the FA Cup, and then two weeks later, he made headlines with an outstanding cameo against Newcastle United in the Premier League.


In opposition to the Magpies, the Belgian magician reminded everyone of what an extraordinary player he truly is. In fact, Ruben Dias recently described him as “a unique talent.”


There is ongoing speculation that Saudi Arabian officials are eager to acquire De Bruyne in order to elevate the league’s profile.


However, according to a recent assessment, it will be exceedingly challenging for them…Manchester City is interested in Saudi Arabia purchasing Kevin De Bruyne for a minimum of £100 million.According to intelligence provided by journalist Ben Jacobs, Manchester City has a position regarding Kevin De Bruyne.


The Saudi Pro League is seeking a household figure, and Liverpool’s De Bruyne and Mo Salah are the leading candidates.


Saudi authorities have previously initiated contact with De Bruyne’s camp, and both Al-Nassr and Al-Hilal have conveyed their interest.As stated by Jacobs in his column Caught Offside, City would require a minimum offer of £100 million before discussing the possibility of selling the 32-year-old.


Evidently, Pep Guardiola maintains optimism regarding the possibility of De Bruyne renewing his existing contract at the Etihad, which is set to expire in 2025.


Prior to this, it was speculated that De Bruyne, who has been with City since 2015, might complete his tenure with the club. The player has reared his family in Manchester, where he is settled and devoted to the club.


De Bruyne remains inert.

Thus, the Saudi Pro League continues to seek a household name, and names do not come much larger than Gary Neville’s characterization of City’s Belgian maestro following the victory over Newcastle as “on an entirely different level.”Their immediate attention towards him is entirely rational, considering his extraordinary prowess as a footballer and his international notoriety.


However, he is currently unable to relocate to Saudi Arabia, and it is extremely unlikely that De Bruyne will ever consider doing so.


The player has been content and established in Manchester for a considerable period of time.


It is not exactly a necessary move for him to make, considering De Bruyne is earning mega-money at the Etihad. Clearly, De Bruyne could amass an enormous fortune in Saudi Arabia, but it appears that money is not his motivation.At this juncture, legacy matters, and De Bruyne can solidify his status as the preeminent Premier League player of all time by completing his career at City.
