Officially the transfer has not yet. The British newspaper The Guardian writes that Kevin De Bruyne to Manchester flies for a medical examination. If he passes, then it will be Manchester City to him Friday officially propose. He then plays Friday for Wolfsburg against Schalke 04.

According to the newspaper pays the club of Vincent Kompany and Jason Denayer 74 million euros to the ‘Wölfe’, the German tabloid Bild has about 80 million euro. His salary would reportedly around 250,000 pounds (343,000 euros) per week.


Anyway, De Bruyne punch Christian Benteke (Liverpool FC) of the throne as the most expensive Belgian footballer and is even one of the most expensive transfers of all time. Go to him anyway, still on the list: Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo (both of Real Madrid) and Luis Suarez (FC Barcelona).

Our countryman is also the most expensive outgoing transfer in the history of the Bundesliga and is the second most expensive purchase by a British club, after Di Maria last year (Real Madrid to Manchester United, ed.).

Manchester City already attracts weeks on the sleeve of De Bruyne, who earlier in the Premier League was working for Chelsea. The past few days, there was also talk of interest from Manchester United and Paris SG, but they fish so apparently behind the net.
