Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce announced the signing of Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne last night.
Unfortunately, he wasn’t being serious, but playfully approached the Belgian maestro during his post-match interview after City beat Newcastle in the FA Cup.

“Bruno Fernandes told me that, as a kid, he had a poster of me. He said that when he played Football Manager he always signed me. I was like, ‘You had me on a poster? And, seriously, you sign me for FM?’ I mean, how weird is that?” – Who said this? Click here to read more.
Bruce is clearly a huge admirer of De Bruyne’s talents, with the 29-year-old putting in a typically superb display in City’s win at St James’ Park.
Maybe if Newcastle eventually get the takeover they’re hoping for, they could afford a talent like De Bruyne, but for now they can keep dreaming.
