Nonetheless, there appears to be interest in the Belgian’s skills in Saudi Arabia, with two clubs in particular reportedly showing interest.
De Bruyne and Mo Salah of Liverpool are the two most prominent targets that Saudi Arabian teams have their minds set on this summer. According to Caught Offside, both Al Nassr and Al Hilal, owned by Cristiano Ronaldo, have their sights set on De Bruyne.
Guardiola and City have established an expectation of at least £100 million for De Bruyne in the event that they part ways, even though they are eager to keep the Belgian for longer.
It will take time to determine whether the Middle Eastern offer is good enough to convince De Bruyne to leave the Premier League.
