Transfer Temptation: Man City Star Eyed for Blockbuster €120 Million Move


There are reports that clubs in the Saudi Pro League are eager to sign Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne and are willing to challenge his resolve with a substantial €120 million offer.

According to Mundo Deportivo, teams from the Saudi Pro League are gearing up to present a significant €120 million offer for Kevin De Bruyne, potentially placing him at a crucial career juncture.

While Manchester City would ideally like him to stay until after 2025, they might consider accepting the offer if it meets their requirements.

Since the closure of the summer transfer window in August of last year, there have been ongoing rumors about Saudi Pro League teams showing interest in Kevin De Bruyne.

During that period, Al-Ittihad reportedly made a substantial bid for Mohamed Salah. However, De Bruyne was not available for transfer due to a serious hamstring injury that kept him sidelined until January.

As Kevin De Bruyne will be entering the final year of his contract when the summer transfer market opens, he may be considering new challenges.

Given that the four primary PIF-owned teams—Al-Nassr, Al-Ittihad, Al-Hilal, and Al-Ahli—possess significant financial resources and are well-placed to attract top talent, Saudi clubs are already expressing interest in signing him.

Kevin De Bruyne, currently playing for Manchester City, is a sought-after target for the Saudi Pro League, alongside other notable athletes like Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo. The league is keen to add De Bruyne and Mohamed Salah to its roster.

According to the source, multiple Saudi teams may tempt the Manchester City midfielder with a €120 million deal, potentially marking the highest offer of his career.

When a player has expressed a desire to leave Manchester City, the club has historically not obstructed their departure. While there have been talks of extending Kevin De Bruyne’s contract, the same principle may apply to him.

No Premier League team, including City, can match the salaries offered by Saudi clubs. With their substantial financial resources, the Saudi clubs may be willing to meet De Bruyne’s high demands to secure his services.

Consequently, De Bruyne will need to weigh the option of accepting a lucrative offer to continue his career in the Middle East or staying with Manchester City, where he has established himself as one of the club’s premier players.
