Kevin De Bruyne has signed a new five-year contract with Manchester City that will tie him down until 2023, the Premier League club announced Monday.
De Bruyne’s previous deal was not due to expire until 2021, but his increasing importance to Pep Guardiola’s side has encouraged City to offer him fresh terms.
“As I’ve said previously, my intention has always been to stay here at City, where I’ve felt at home from day one,” De Bruyne told CityTV.
The Belgium international signed from Wolfsburg in August 2015 for a reported £55 million and has since established himself as one of the most important figures at the Etihad Stadium.
De Bruyne won the EFL Cup with City in his first season at the club in 2015-16 and looks set to earn a Premier League crown this year with City 12 points clear of second place local rivals Manchester United.
