Football transfer rumours: Wolfsburg's Kevin De Bruyne to Manchester City?

Guardian Sport - 4 hours 44 min ago

Today’s fluff says: STOP IT! (How many players can do that?)

We need to talk about Kevin De Bruyne. He is sick of currywurst. The fried sausage and curry-pasted ketchup are just too heavy on his stomach. He is also sick of the AutoMuseum Volkswagen. He has been there so many times with family and friends that he knows every nook and cranny of the 5,000-square-metre exhibition space – every small scratch on the 130 vehicles on show and every bad joke that the tour guide makes (“... unhook my suspenders from your side mirror, please!” ). He is even sick of the Phaeno Science Center, something he swore he would never let happen upon swapping London for Wolfsburg. But happen it has and De Bruyne wants a change. Lucky for him, the form of his feet this season means every club and its mother is lining up around the corner to talk to his Mr 15%. The latest to do so is Manchester City.

Apparently some suit from City has met a man, who knows a man, who once met a woman from the diving club in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, who knew a second cousin of a different woman who once was in the same stadium as De Bruyne and his Mr 15% and she says that City have a chance of beating Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich to his signature. That signature that will cost them a cool £40m. Or more if Mr 15% is to believed. “Clubs who are ready to bid €30m for Kevin have no sense of reality,” he honked. “A player like Kevin has a market value of some €50m, €55m or even €60m by now,” he added, surely just thinking about what is best for his client and not in any way worrying about how much moolah he is going to make from the deal.
