Manchester City 7/4 to sign Wolfsburg playmaker Kevin De Bruyne this summer
Competition: Premier League
Market: Man City to sign Kevin De Bruyne
Odds: 7/4 @ Ladbrokes
Manchester City have been linked with Wolfsburg midfielder Kevin De Bruyne this summer, and are expected to make an official bid for the talented Belgian in the coming week. With the Sky Blues set to undergo a transitional period due to their ageing squad, manager Manuel Pellegrini is targeting young talent to blood through in their place.
De Bruyne operates as a central playmaker in an advanced midfield role, and can play on either flank too. He made more assists and created more chances than any other play in the German Bundesliga last season, but is likely to cost a hefty sum given his incredible full debut season with the Wolves. The German club paid his former side Chelsea around £19M for the 23-year-old, and would want at least double that figure now.
City regard De Bruyne as one of the best young talents in the world, and recent comments made by the player suggest the two parties have been in talks. As a result, Ladbrokes are giving odds of 7/4 for the former Blues star to join City ahead of the new season.
