Man City’s Bold De Bruyne Decision Revealed Amid New Joao Cancelo Transfer Twist

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has been the center of much speculation this summer as he enters the final year of his contract.

Despite the rumors swirling around, Manchester City reportedly have no plans to sign any replacements for Kevin De Bruyne this summer.

The Belgian playmaker’s contract at the Etihad Stadium is set to expire next summer, sparking a frenzy of speculation. There have been reports suggesting that De Bruyne has reached a ‘verbal agreement’ with Saudi Pro League club Al Ittihad.

However, according to The Athletic, City are determined to keep De Bruyne for the upcoming season. While his future beyond 2025 remains uncertain, the club has no intention of selling him or bringing in a replacement at this point.

Crystal Palace’s Eberechi Eze has been mentioned as a potential target for City, but the report indicates that Pep Guardiola’s side are not planning to make a move for him during this transfer window. It’s believed that City could trigger Eze’s release clause with a £60m bid if they chose to pursue him.

In other news, City are facing a stalemate regarding the future of Joao Cancelo. The full-back is not in the Blues’ plans for next season, and the club believes a permanent transfer would be the best outcome for all parties involved.

However, The Athletic notes that City are realistic about the situation and recognize that there are very few clubs interested in signing Cancelo on a permanent basis. As a result, the most likely scenario is another loan move for Cancelo next season, although it remains unclear whether Barcelona, who previously took him on loan, would be interested in doing so again.
