There is no Manchester City offer, says Kevin De Bruyne

Kevin De Bruyne has rejected rumours that Manchester City have lodged a £48 million bid with Wolfsburg.

The Belgium international was named Bundesliga Player of the Year for his attacking exploits as the Volkswagen Arena side finished second behind Bayern Munich and won the DFB-Pokal.

Since joining Wolfsburg 18 months ago, De Bruyne’s reputation has rocketed and the 24-year-old has attracted reported interest from the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Man City.

The Premier League side are now believed to be pursuing the former Chelsea winger as their final summer signing, but De Bruyne has insisted that he is in the dark about where he will call home at the end of the transfer window.

“I can’t say what is going to happen,” he told SID. “I don’t know of any offer. If there is one, I will know about it. The clubs decide what will happen and we have to see what Wolfsburg say.

“I am not that kind of player who says he will stay and two weeks later he is gone. I have no idea what will happen.”

Arjen Robben had called for the talented Belgian to stay in Germany because of his talent, and De Bruyne admitted he is flattered by such a compliment from a winger considered one of the best in the world.

“When a big player like Robben says something like that, it is huge for me,” he added. “I have to prove I belong amongst the best.”

Wolfsburg started 2015-16 in fantastic style, beating Bayern Munich on penalties in the DFL-Supercup on Saturday after a 1-1 draw, and De Bruyne hopes they can build on that result in the title race.

“If we start well, we’ll maybe have the chance to get closer to Bayern,” he continued. “We play a little different now, but we’re learning more and more every day how to play this way.”
