It looks like Lionel Messi and Erling Haaland will push Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne to wait for approval to extend his contract with the Premier League leaders.
The “Sky Blue” management seeks to renew the Belgian international contract as soon as possible, especially since it is one of the main pillars in the project of the team coach, Pep Guardiola.
But it seems that De Bruyne is not in a hurry at all, in the matter of renewing the contract, especially with the possibility of other parties entering the line.
The British newspaper “Daily Star” reported that De Bruyne will wait until after the summer to decide his future with the team.
She added that the Belgian international wants to know if Manchester City will include the duo, Lionel Messi and Erling Haaland.
De Bruyne sees the possibility of obtaining a contract with better terms, if his club contracts with the stars of Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund, as they are expected to receive a large salary.
The Belgian is currently earning 290,000 pounds every week, with the possibility of this amount reaching 310,000, thanks to incentives, while City wants to reduce his wages in the new contract, which is still under discussion.
The “Daily Star” said that Lionel Messi is expected to get 500 thousand pounds, and Haaland 300 thousand pounds a week, if he joins Manchester City.
So, De Bruyne will wait until the picture becomes clearer, in order to determine his position on extending his contract, with the Premier League leaders.
