Transfer Balls: Kevin De Bruyne joins Manchester City for £56million and £300,000 a week
Kevin De Bruyne will become a Manchester City player tomorrow, says the Times.
The paper says City have agreed to invest £56 million in Wolfsburg’s Belgium midfielder. Patrick De Koster, De Bruyne’s agent, says that to the best of his knowledge his client has not agreed a five-year contract, worth nearly £230,000 a week.
The Guardian tells him that the deal has been struck at £54m.
Daily Mirror has seen it. But it says the Times is wrong – De Bruyne will earn – get this – £300,000 a week to kiss the Man City badge. Hell, for that money the former Chelsea man will even move to Manchester.
