The Belgian has two-and-a-half years remaining on his current contract at the Etihad, but Manchester City are keen on further extending his stay.


De Bruyne has played a part in 14 of Manchester City’s 15 Premier League games so far this season and has been the creative drive behind the Citizens’ attack, setting up eight goals while scoring three.



It has been claimed in some quarters that negotiations over a new contract between the Manchester giants and the midfield maestro are advanced and he is close to signing a new deal at the club.


However, De Bruyne is not close to sealing a new deal at Manchester City. 



Pep Guardiola’s side have tabled a new proposal to the 29-year-old, but he is unwilling to sign off on the terms offered.


The Spanish tactician is keen for Manchester City to tie up any loose ends regarding De Bruyne’s contract negotiations quickly and focus on the pitch. 



Nonetheless, De Bruyne has managed to not be distracted by the talk surrounding his contract situation as he starred for Manchester City in Sunday’s Premier League clash against Chelsea with a goal and an assist in a 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge.
