Manchester City have splashed out €71m on former Chelsea playmaker Kevin de Bruyne
The Belgian international has returned to the Premier League from Wolfsburg.

MANCHESTER CITY HAVE signed Kevin de Bruyne from Bundesliga club Wolfsburg.

The 24-year-old midfielder, who spent two years as a squad player at Chelsea, has agreed a six-year deal with the Premier League leaders in a deal worth a reported £52 million (€71m).

Having shipped out Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic in recent weeks, Belgian international De Bruyne will bolster manager Manuel Pellegrini’s attacking options and joins Raheem Sterling , Fabian Delph and Nicolas Otamendi as the club’s summer signings.

“I want to reach the highest level possible as a player and I think the most important thing is that at the end of the season we can be happy and maybe have some titles. I think this is the most important for the Club, the players and for the fans of course.”

City manager Pellegrini added: “We are very happy to have added Kevin to our team and I have no doubt that he will be a big success on his return to the Premier League.

“It takes a special footballer to improve our squad and I have no doubt that Kevin is certainly one of those – he has all of the mental, physical, tactical and technical attributes required to fit straight in.

“We like to play attractive, attacking football and bringing in a player like De Bruyne will only aid us as we fight on four fronts.”
