De Bruyne Takes On Contract Talks After Ex-Agent's Arrest

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has started his own negotiation with the club over a new contract following the arrest of his former agent.

The Belgian playmaker's current deal only expires in 2023, but he is expecting improved terms after consistently being one of the top players at the club.

The 2019/20 PFA Players' Player of the Year saw his former agent, Patrick de Koster, being arrested on suspicion of money laundering earlier this year, so the 29-year-old has seemingly taken it upon himself to negotiate an extension with the Citizens.

"I am at a good club. Good owners. Good club. We are a bit in talks, not advanced," De Bruyne told VTM Nieuws.

"I am happy in Manchester. At the moment, I am doing the talks myself. I would like to stay with the club, so it's easy.

"If I didn't want to stay, it would take someone to mediate. But when you want to stay, it's not so difficult."
