        Man City playmaker to enter final year of contract

        De Bruyne is open to move to Saudi Pro League

        Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has confirmed that he is open to a move to Saudi Arabia when the time comes for him to leave the Premier League. 

        De Bruyne will turn 33-years-old at the end of this month, and missed chunks of last season through injury, although he returned to help guide the Cityzens to their fourth straight Premier League title. 

        Currently focused on playing for Belgium in the forthcoming Euros in Germany, the playmaker told media outlet VTM that his mind is increasingly turning to what the future may hold when he leaves the Etihad. 

        De Bruyne told reporter Aster Nzeyimana: "For Michele [his wife], an exotic adventure is okay. These are also conversations that we are increasingly having as a family.

        “I still have one year left on my contract, so I have to think about what could happen. My eldest son is now eight years old and knows nothing but England. 

        "He also asks how long I will play for City. Once the moment comes, we will have to deal with it in a certain way.”

        De Bruyne will enter the final year of his contract with City next season and believes a move to Saudi Arabia is a viable option given the financial rewards on offer.

         “At my age you have to be open to everything. You're talking about incredible amounts of money in what may be the end of my career. Sometimes you have to think about that,” De Bruyne added. 

        “If I play there for two years, I will be able to earn an incredible amount of money. Before that I had to play football for 15 years. I may not even reach that amount yet. 

        "Then you have to think about what that could mean next. But at the moment I haven't had to think about that yet."

        That's a good sign. I'll see how long I can remain at this level. I have many options, but it's not yet time to make a decision on my future.

        As a football fan, I can't deny that Kevin De Bruyne has been an integral part of Manchester City's success in recent years. It's sad to think that he may leave the Premier League, but I can understand his desire for an exotic adventure. It's reassuring to see that he's

        I have always said that I want to play for a different club in a different country at some point, so I'm open to that.

        As an en-GB football fan, I have to say I am not surprised by De Bruyne's comments. It's natural for players to consider their options when their contract is coming to an end and it's clear he wants to experience something new. However, it would be a shame to see him leave the Premier League as he has been such

        That's a bit annoying, but I also can't say at the moment how long I will play.

        As a football fan, I can't believe De Bruyne is even considering leaving the Premier League! He's been such an integral part of City's success and I can't imagine them without him. But I understand that at 33-years-old, he may want to explore new opportunities. It's a shame though, as he's such a talented player and I would hate to see
