City announced on Wednesday that the 29-year-old has put pen to paper on a new deal until 2025.
"Pep and I see football in the same way. Having that relationship with a manager is so important to me because our objectives are totally aligned, and we want the same things," De Bruyne told the club's official website.
"This football club is geared for success. It offers me everything I need to maximise my performance, so signing this contract was a straightforward decision.
"I am playing the best football of my career and I honestly feel there is more to come.
"I could not be happier. Since joining City in 2015, I have felt at home. I love the fans; my family are settled here in Manchester and my own game has developed really well.
"My focus now is on ensuring we have a successful end to the current campaign. Our results and performances so far have been excellent, but we need to make sure we end the season with the silverware we deserve."
What makes this extension special is the fact that De Bruyne negotiated large parts of his new terms himself, without any agents involved, as Belgium journalist Kristof Terreur confirmed.
De Bruyne is believed to earn £350 000 (R7 million) a week on his new deal, cementing his position as the highest-paid player at the club.
He is followed by Raheem Sterling, who is on weekly wages of £300 000 (R6 million), while Sergio Aguero completes the podium with £230 000 (R4.6 million) a week.
Overall, there are 12 City stars with a salary of £100 000 (R2 million) a week or more – you can find all of them in the gallery above!
