De Bruyne agent rules out Real move

Patrick De Koster, the agent of Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne has reportedly ruled out the possibility of his client moving to Real Madrid this summer.

With the Premier League champions being slapped with a two-season ban from European competition, pending an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS), there are speculations about the possibility of a potentially denied appeal sparking a mass exodus of stars from the Etihad, De Bruyne among them.

However, as City prepared to travel to Madrid to face Real in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16, De Koster reportedly made it clear he wasn’t going to the Spanish capital at all in order to avoid adding fuel to unfounded rumours. In fact, as relayed by the Mirror, he directly ruled the move out.

Considered among the best players in the world at the moment, the 28-year-old Belgian is contracted to City until the summer of 2023, and it’s quite possible that prizing him away from the Sky-Blues would take a world-record fee.
