Manchester City star performer Kevin De Bruyne is reportedly considering to exit the doors at the Etihad Stadium if City loss their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) in a bid to maintain their eligibility for European football.
The Premier defending champions face a two season ban from participating in European competition, and the ban will definitely come if the Citizens loss their appeal to CAS.
They have already been hit with a heavy fine and are on the verge of losing another price asset in Kevin De Bruyne.
The attacking midfielder last penned a new 5-year contract extension with City in 2018, which saw the Belgian commit his future at Etihad until 2023.
With three years now left on De Bruyne’s contract and City ready to commit his future for longer by offering two new year extension, they could potentially face resistance from the former Wolfsburg man as Sport Foot claim that the 28-year-old is “weighing up” his options and is stalling over a new contract due to City’s chances of been relegated to the background of European competition for two seasons.
Real Madrid have shown interest in signing him as further claimed by the Sport Foot’s report and compatriots Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois could be asked to persuade De Bruyne to Santiago Bernabeu.
