Manchester City play maker Kevin De Bruyne has announced his stance at Manchester City after Pep Guardiola announced he will be leaving the Club

Manchester City’s focus will be on winning the Premier League for a sixth consecutive season. To attempt to do that, they will once more aim to bolster their roster during the impending transfer window.

There may be arrivals and departures this summer with names already connected to a transfer to the team. On June 14, the transfer market officially starts, and teams from all around the world will be fighting for the finest players available.

Thus, it should come as no surprise that City is the subject of much media discussion. Here are a few of the most recent with our own viewpoint included.

The De Bruyne contract position
According to the Times, Kevin De Bruyne is “open” to extending his current deal at City but is of interest to teams in Saudi Arabia this summer.

The midfielder has played a major role in City’s recent domination under Pep Guardiola. Next season’s finish marks the expiration of his present contract.

He only made 15 starts in the Premier League this season because to a hamstring issue. Nevertheless, he was able to muster 10 assists and 4 goals.

De Bruyne will be looking to get past his injury issues in the upcoming season, which will be concerning for the teams trying to unseat City, according to MEN Sport. The player’s desire to join the Saudi Pro League is lacking.

For City, that can only be good news. Since moving to the Etihad Stadium in 2015, he has had a significant impact in many games, and it appears that he will continue to do so for at least another year.

The problem of Kalvin Phillips
In the wake of Leeds United’s failure to get promotion back to the Premier League, City has lost another possible suitor for Kalvin Phillips.

On Sunday, the Whites hosted Southampton at Wembley Stadium, and Adam Armstrong’s goal was the deciding factor between the two teams. Taylor Harwood-Bellis moved permanently to the Saints as a result of that outcome.

However, it also had an additional effect on City’s transfers. While Phillips is at Wembley, Leeds is one of the teams connected to him. However, the Mirror claims that Leeds’s inability to get promotion means they will not be able to recruit the midfield player again from City this summer.

According to MEN Sport, Phillips should move on this summer in an effort to revive his career. It’s doubtful that West Ham would pursue a long-term contract with him after his terrible loan stint there in the second half of the season.

All sides may have benefited from a return to Leeds, where his achievements won him a call-up to the England squad and spurred City to act. However, because that choice is no longer available, the hunt for a suitable match goes on.

In order to become the player Manchester City saw when they completed the deal, Phillips needed a place where he can play frequently. It is yet unknown if that is in the Premier League or elsewhere.
