The attacking midfielder is linked with a Premier League return
Kevin De Bruyne’s agent, Patrick De Koster, has revealed that his client won’t force a move from VfL Wolfsburg to Manchester City.
The Belgian international has been tipped for a Premier League return in this transfer window, after having a brief spell playing for Chelsea.
Manchester City have reportedly bid £46 million for the winger, but after De Bruyne’s agent admitted his client wouldn’t hand in a transfer request, they may have to bid around £50 million.
Despite not wanting to force a move away from the Bundesliga, it is believed the 24-year old is open to a move to the Etihad Stadium. Stories suggest De Bruyne wants to agree personal terms of £200,000-a-week.
‘We have a good relationship with Wolfsburg’
When asked if his client and himself would try and materialise a move to City, De Koster said: “There is no way we would do something like that.”
He also added: “We have a good relationship with Wolfsburg and a transfer request is not something that happens in Germany.”
“At this stage we have not received a call to say that any bid has been accepted and until we do, Kevin will stay where he is,” admitted De Koster.
It looks as if Manuel Pellegrini must meet Die Wolfe’s £50 million estimation before they are able to open up talks with the former Genk star.
