Manchester City maestro Kevin De Bruyne is said to have no interest in making a move to Saudi Arabia next summer – and could finish his playing career at the Etihad.
The currently injured 32-year-old has been with City for seven years now.
He joined the club from Wolfsburg for a £55 million fee back in 2016.
It raised eyebrows at the time, but De Bruyne quickly set about showing that City actually underpaid if anything.
De Bruyne has enjoyed a majestic period at City, and is now widely considered one of the greatest Premier League players ever.
At the age of 32 and with injuries starting to come a bit more frequently, he is probably approaching the end of his career.

De Bruyne finishing his career at Man City feels right
It would be amazing to see the ‘sublime’ De Bruyne finishing his playing career at Man City.
Most fans probably just wouldn’t want to see him playing in another shirt, even if that shirt was his first club Genk.
It just feels ‘right’ that De Bruyne could see out his playing career at City.
He is a legend of the club and utterly adored by supporters.
The claim that De Bruyne has no interest in moving to Saudi is no real surprise.
The maestro is very settled in Manchester and considers it his home. He does not need to make that move.
