“I could not be happier. Since joining City in 2015, I have felt at home,” De Bruyne said. “I love the fans, my family are settled here in Manchester and my own game has developed really well.”
“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.”
“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,” he added.
“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.”
De Bruyne has 77 assists from his 176 Premier League appearances and equalled former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry’s record for most assists in a season when he claimed 20 in the 2019-20 campaign.
