De Bruyne to reconsider future if City’s European ban is upheld

Kevin De Bruyne has admitted that the two-year ban from European competitions UEFA has imposed on Manchester City would prompt him to reconsider his future, providing it is upheld.

The Premier League champions have been banned from both the Champions League and the Europa League for the 2020/21 and 2021/22 seasons due to allegedly breaking Financial Fair Play regulations. However, they have taken the matter up with the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS), and the case is yet to be decided.

Speaking to Belgian publication HLN (via the Mirror), the Belgian midfielder revealed that he trusts his club in this matter. If they say they’re going to win the case, he believes them. But if the ban is upheld, it would apparently be very difficult for him to give up on playing in European competitions for two years.

De Bruyne has been one of the best players in the English top flight in the last three years, and his departure would certainly be a blow to Pep Guardiola’s team. One thing is certain – if he decides to leave, he won’t be short of suitors. Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich have all held interest in his services in the past.
