If the pictures doing the rounds on the social media is anything to go by, Manchester City have completed the signing of Manchester United target Kevin De Bruyne in a deal said to be worth £58 million pounds add ons.
According to reports in the last two weeks, Manchester United were keen on signing the player and reportedly tabled a bid of above £50 million for him but it appears City have moved quickly to complete the signing of the former Chelsea target.
Considering how the red devils’ transfer window had spanned out, United fans will be disappointed to see the high rated Belgian going to their rivals but when put into perspective, it seems United have done the most sensible thing here.
De Bruyne is never a 58 million player. Considering the fact that he didn’t do particularly well at Chelsea, there is no guarantee that he will come to the premier league and do well like he has been done in the German league.
United’s £58 million is surely better spent on other targets. Maybe tempt Bayern Munich with a £50 million plus bid for Robert Lewandowski? Bayern said Muller is not for sale, but not Lewandowski. Maybe, just maybe.
