Man City are closing in on a deal to sign Wolfsburg playmaker Kevin de Bruyne with The Guardian claiming the Belgian has agreed personal terms with the Premier League side.
The 24-year-old, who wasn’t given the chance to prove himself by Chelsea, is said to be ready to pen a deal worth an astonishing £52m once Wolfsburg agree a fee with Man City.
De Bruyne stands to net a £200k a week, five-year contract, and is said to be keen on a move to the Etihad Stadium side.
Man City boss Manuel Pellegrini has been heavily backed in the summer transfer market as the Chilean looks to wrestle back the Premier League title from Chelsea.
Chelsea handed de Bruyne just two Premier League starts before Jose Mourinho opted to sell the attacking midfielder to Wolfsburg and the former Racing Genk man hasn’t looked back since.
Last season Kevin de Bruyne finished as the Bundesliga’s leading assist maker and also bagged 16 goals in all competitions.
Man City have spent £100m on deals to sign Raheem Sterling, Fabian Delph, Patrick Roberts and Nicolás Otamendi this summer.
