According to sources, Belgian playmaker Kevin De Bruyne is flying in to England to complete his medical for a switch to Manchester City from Bundesliga squad Wolfsburg. The fee is reported between £48million and £54million – a pretty hefty price tag if you ask me.(come to fifa 16 crédits)
Whether the fee is £48million, or £54million, it is a lot of money for a club to pay for any player, but City has the financial backing to make such a move.
Due to the City owners big pockets City can afford to take a gamble, even with such big resources available to them.
When I say gamble, let me make myself understood. I believe that Kevin De Bruyne is a very good player, who would be a good addition to most Premier League clubs. However, despite City’s big resources it is still a lot of money for a player.
De Bruyne flopped in the Premier League at Chelsea, before making an £18million move to Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg in 2014. He has since been superb for the Wolves, becoming an assist machine, with (vist fifa-coins.fr) 37 assists in 73 appearances for (click here acheter fifa coins) the Wolves in a season-and-a-half.
De Bruyne has also scored 20 goals for the Bundesliga side and offers a vibrant threat from his attacking midfield role. Despite his success in the German top-flight, there will still be question marks over the midfielder’s chances of success in the Premier League.
The 24-year-old has matured a lot in his time in the Bundesliga. No doubt playing week-in week-out has helped him become a far better player. De Bruyne has become the main man and he was never going to get that sort of billing at Stamford Bridge.
De Bruyne is the sort of guy who thrives on being important to his team, as Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho once stated.
