Belgium international Kevin De Bruyne has extended his contract with Manchester City until 2025, the English Premier League club confirmed on Wednesday.
De Bruyne arrived at City from Wolfsburg in 2015, with his previous deal with the English club due to expire in 2023.
The 29-year-old has won two Premier League titles, one FA Cup and four League Cups with City to emerge as one of the finest playmakers in world soccer.
“I could not be happier,” De Bruyne said.”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.”
City leads the Premier League by 14 points with seven games remaining and, inspired by a superb De Bruyne display, takes a 2-1 advantage into the second leg of its Champions League quarterfinal against BoRussia Dortmund next week.
In an injury-interrupted season, De Bruyne has notched eight goals and 16 assists in 33 City appearances this term.
