Manchester City had quite an unwanted end to their season in the last campaign after they failed to lift the one trophy that they are still waiting to win for the first time; the UEFA Champions League title. The Cityzens were one of the best and most in-form teams across Europe last season both domestically and among their European rivals as they battled to reach the final of the Champions League.
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola and his playmaker, Kevin De Bruyne (KDB) could both be facing Inter Milan striker RomeluLukaku on the opposite side when hostilities begin in the new Premier League next week with rivals Chelsea keen to land the expert goalscorer for a fee believed to be around £100m this summer.
Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne has debunked rumors suggesting that he wants to leave the Etihad club to achieve his desire of winning the UEFA Champions League title. The Belgium international midfielder has often said in the past that it would be a dream come true for him to lift the prestigious European club trophy and even though he came very close to achieving that dream with City last season, it could not happen.
The midfielder played a very important role for City as he helped them reach the final of the UEFA Champions League but they could not suppress the resilience and determination of Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea side as they fell to a 1-0 defeat courtesy of a Kai Havertz first-half goal. The game was one to forget for De Bruyne for some other reason, as the former Wolfsburg star collided with Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger during the game and he sustained an injury before missing the rest of the game.

Manchester United midfielder Kevin de Bruyne has insisted that they will not be slowing down even if they win the UEFA Champions League title later this month to add to their league title win. The Belgian midfielder has admitted that he knows they were not at their best at the beginning of the season but states that he is happy and satisfied at how all the players were able to recover from their ill moments and also how they ended up turning their season around.
The former Wolfsburg star has been a mainstay in the City midfield this season and has put in sublime performances for the club whenever he has played. Earlier in the season, de Bruyne mentioned that he, the other City players, and their manager Pep Guardiola all agreed that they would work hard to win every competition they’re in but even after being knocked out of the Emirates FA Cup at the hands of Chelsea, they have won the League Cup, the Premier League title, and they’re now in the UEFA Champions League final.

In what will come as a huge bit of positive news to everyone concerned with Manchester City, especially manager Pep Guardiola, star midfielder and club captain Kevin De Bruyne has been confirmed to have returned to first-team training despite picking an ankle injury in the defeat they suffered at the hands of Leeds United in the Premier League days ago.
The Belgian international midfielder has been City’s midfield anchor and one of their best players so far this season, alongside German midfield enforcer, Ilkay Gundogan. However, there were fears that he would miss the all-important Cup final against Tottenham on Saturday. After walking off the pitch during that match, Guardiola revealed after the game that he did not know the exact nature of the injury and would have to consult the club’s doctors for more analysis.

There have been a lot of debates about who the better midfield player is between Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes and Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne. While both players are technically gifted and are key players of their respective teams, a lot of people still believe that they have differences as well as similarities.
De Bruyne has been a key member of the Manchester City team for a long time now since making the switch from German Bundesliga side Wolfsburg. Since joining City, he has cemented his name in the mind of Manchester City fans and they have in return, idolized him so well that he is already now part of the club’s history. The Belgian superstar loves to make direct passes into the 18-yard box and registers a lot of assists in the process. He assists goals more than he scores and while pundits have asked him to improve on his shooting skills, his manager Guardiola believes his assists are as important as goals.
