Negotiations between the parties have begun. The extension of the contract is in the interest of both parties. The Belgian is not satisfied with the first offer.

The current contract of the 29-year-old Belgian leader of Manchester City – Kevin de Bruyne expires in the summer of 2023. However, after it became known that Pep Guardiola remains in the ranks of the “Cityzens”, the player also decided to start negotiations with the management to extend his contract.

City bosses have reportedly been keen to extend the contract for another five years, although The Times reports that de Bruyne is unhappy with his first contract offer and he is likely to turn it down. The player also does not like the pace at which the club’s representatives are trying to resolve the issue. It seems that the negotiations between the parties will last longer than expected.

Here we remind you that yesterday Manchester City played another Premier League match against Chelsea in London and won quite a convincing victory. Guardiola’s team defeated the “Aristocrats” 3-1 at home.

In this controversy, de Bruyne showed himself with a goal assist and a goal. As a result, Manchester has accumulated 29 points and is in the fifth position in the tournament table. De Bruyne has a total of three goals and eight assists in the current season of the English Championship.
