Kevin De Bruyne central to Manchester City success

Kevin De Bruyne would be happy to extend his contract at Manchester City with the Premier League leaders keen to give him a new deal. I'm not thinking it has to happen fast.

"I'm on the right track and I'm one of the leaders of the team", De Bruyne told Goal.

The Citizens now sit at the top of the Premier League, having won five and drawn one of their opening six games, while they have scored 21 goals in the process. That's fun. That does not often happen.

Mendy, 23, joined City from French champions Monaco this summer on a five-year contract for a reported £52 million to make him the world's most expensive defender.

"I was at Watford last weekend when we won 6-0 and Elton John, who was at the game, said he had not seen football like that for a long time". Some would say, "Oh, I'm going to Chelsea me", others would go, "No, no, I'm off to Paris Saint-Germain". "Whether I'm four, five or six years under contract, that does not change much, but it's nice the club have so much confidence in me". 'We have one of the best projects in Europe and we want to continue writing the history of this club'.


The England winger took his Premier League tally for five to the campaign with a brace against Palace and his manager was quick to discourage Arsenal from considering a January bid.

"To win two or three trophies this season with City", Mendy answered when asked about his 2017-18 ambitions. "The club trust him - that is why we have invested a lot of money in him".

We're going to qualify.

"From the moment he arrived, he wanted them to play a certain way and what I'm seeing now is close to perfection".
