De Bruyne worked with father to land new £400,000-a-week Man City contract

Kevin de Bruyne's new deal with Manchester City is worth a massive £400,000-a-week.

The Sunday World says De Bruyne didn't use an agent to negotiate his stunning new contract with City, as he finalised his £400,000-a-week contract using his father as part of his negotiating team.

Bruyne has signed a two-year contract extension that will keep him at the club until 2025, with the £83million deal ensuring he is the highest earning player at the club... for now.

That could change if either Erling Haaland or Lionel Messi arrive at City this summer, yet this looks like a stunning deal agreed by De Bruyne and his father Herwig, who is a lawyer.

The Belgium international, whose existing deal was due to expire in 2023, is 30 in June and now looks set to see out most of the remainder of his career at the Etihad Stadium.
