DE BRUYNE’S CAREER ON THE BRINK! KDB Drops Nuclear Bombshell: “I’m Walking Away from Manchester City”…

Kevin De Bruyne has hinted at retirement while discussing his future amid ongoing contract uncertainty with Manchester City. De Bruyne assured fans that he plans to return to Manchester City next season and intends to start contract negotiations soon. However, his comments about potential retirement might provide City with unexpected optimism.


De Bruyne stirred speculation by acknowledging the high salaries available from a potential move to Saudi Arabia. He later clarified that he has “more than enough money,” reaffirming his commitment to blunt honesty. He emphasized that no transfer discussions have taken place and he anticipates returning to City, though he might consider a transfer if offered an “exorbitant” amount.


At 33 years old and entering the final year of his contract, De Bruyne expects contract talks to commence shortly. From his latest remarks, it’s clear he plans to stay at Etihad unless unforeseen changes occur.


Regarding his international career, De Bruyne told Het Nieuwsblad he hasn’t yet decided on his future with the national team. He feels good physically and will continue with the national team as long as that remains the case. He noted the appeal of the time off during international breaks for family time, but acknowledged he doesn’t have many years left in his career and has already missed significant national team time.


De Bruyne added that if he continues to feel good, he’ll probably remain available for international duty, but the demanding upcoming season with City could influence his decision. With City potentially playing up to 75 matches in the 2024/25 season and an additional 10 international games, he faces the prospect of nearly continuous play from early August 2024 to mid-July 2025.


Should he renew his contract with City, De Bruyne might need to reassess his international commitments to extend his club career and prevent injuries. Considering his ambitions for the 2026 World Cup, his potential international retirement could benefit City by allowing him to focus more on his club responsibilities for at least another year.
