Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allofs expects Kevin De Bruyne to complete a transfer to Manchester City by Saturday at the latest.
The Belgium international has been heavily linked with a big-money return to the Premier League, having previously played for Chelsea.
Amid City remaining tight-lipped over their pursuit of the 24-year-old attacking midfielder, Wolfsburg have provided regular updates on the future of their prized asset.
Allofs had said any transfer to City was far from a done deal, but things appear to have changed as the transfer deadline moves nearer.
Speaking ahead of Friday’s Bundesliga clash with Schalke – for which De Bruyne was not selected – Allofs revealed the saga could come to a conclusion in the next 24 hours.
He is quoted as telling reporters: “We will complete everything either tonight or tomorrow. De Bruyne is off to Manchester City.”
