The Belgium midfielder has sparked the interest of a number of major flight clubs soon after a stellar season with Wolfsburg, exactly where he was named the most effective player in the Bundesliga.
The 23-year-old told Sky Sports News HQ that there had been “informal contact” with City but that the choice would in the end rest with Wolfsburg since the former Chelsea man is only one particular season into his five-year contract.
“We say to everybody – if they wish to do one thing, they have to go to Wolfsburg, to not me,” he said.
De Bruyne joined Wolfsburg in January 2014 on a five-year contract, leaving Chelsea right after getting offered just two begins below manager Jose Mourinho. Sold for ￡18m then, the 23-year-old is anticipated to expense practically double that now.
“I generally thought that I was going to talk to my club initial when the season was over. And for me the season will not be over. That begins in all probability next week or the week right after but I’ll also be on holiday,” De Bruyne stated.
“I don’t have any strain about these factors. It’ll come this way and I know that you can find a lot of rumours and also the papers are writing a good deal.”
Playing time are going to be a key aspect in any decision to leave, because it was when he made the move from Chelsea last year.
“It’s been for me a superb season,” he said. “I consider the thing I am most excited about is that I played virtually every thing, missed just one particular game, began everything and played anything.
“My time at Chelsea wasn’t undesirable. Everybody talks about it and that it was seriously undesirable but I just decided I didn’t choose to keep at the club below these circumstances, I just wanted to play football and that is what I did.”
