Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has perhaps strongly hinted that his club could be signing Wolfsburg attacking midfielder Kevin De Bruyne this summer.

The Belgian international has talked up his fellow countryman in an interview with Goal.com, and says that if the former Chelsea man ended up at the Etihad Stadium, he’d be one of the happiest guys in the squad.

“Kevin is a phenomenal talent,” he said. “He’s a game-changer, he’s efficient in front of goal but he’s also a great passer, which is probably his biggest quality.

“I try not to influence too much but I do recognise the fact that he’s an unbelievable talent and any team he goes to, he will make that team stronger.

“If he comes to City, I would be one of the happiest guys in the team. But it’s not my call and it’s his decision to make.”

After 10 goals and 20 assists this season, the 23-year-old is regarded as one of the best prospects in Europe, and other clubs like Manchester United have also shown an interest in his services this summer, with rumours that he could be available for around £35m.
