Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne maintains he is happy at the Etihad and has no intention of leaving despite interest from Barcelona and Real Madrid
Arguably the best midfielder in the Premier League and one of the best in the world, De Bruyne has been starring for City this season even though the reigning holders already lost the title battle to Liverpool.
The 28-year-old Belgian has already managed seven goals and 16 assists in 24 top-flight outings for Pep Guardiola’s side, which makes him the most creative in Europe’s top-five leagues.
Barcelona and Real Madrid have both expressed their interest in the highly-rated playmaker, who would be a massive addition to each team.

Although his side already surrendered the league crown to Liverpool, they remain in contention for the Champions League trophy, and the former Chelsea man will be instrumental to City’s plans of landing their first-ever Champions League title.
Speaking of his ambition to win the competition with City, De Bruyne said: “With the draw, I don’t think there was a small team we could have had. If you want to win the Champions League, you need to beat the best.
“I think this is what you want to play for. You want to play Champions League, World Cups, Euros, all that stuff.
“Obviously it’s something I have not won so maybe subconsciously it’s something that we want more.
“But you want to win everything, League Cup, FA Cup, Champions League, training also – sometimes it’s even worse in training.”
