Kevin De Bruyne has signed a two-year contract extension that will keep him at Manchester City until 2025, the Premier League club announced on Wednesday.
The Belgian, whose previous contract expires in 2023, is 30 on May and is now ready to see much of his career at the Etihad Stadium.
De Bruyne has had a fantastic season since joining the club from Wolfsburg in 2015, winning seven big trophies, which could rise to 11 at the end of this season if the City succeed in their quest for four.
“I couldn’t be happier,” De Bruyne said. “Ever since I joined the City in 2015, I have felt like home. I love the fans, my family is living here in Manchester and my own game has really developed.
“Having that relationship with the manager is very important to me because the venues are completely compatible and we want the same things,” he said.
The city’s football director, Txiki Begiristain, praised De Bruyne as one of the best players in world football.
“His career level has been remarkably steady since he came to City, and in recent years he has become one of the most popular actors in the sport,” he said.
“His talent is undoubtedly, but he is also a successful professional who excelled for Manchester City during his time here. It is not something short of remarkable.”
