Kevin de Bruyne has hinted that he might consider leaving Manchester City soon despite enjoying a brilliant career with the Citizens.

Now back to his best, Kevin de Bruyne is blazing the English Premier League with his exploits. The Belgium international has been scoring goals and providing for fun so far this season and is definitely going to play a crucial role in helping his team retain the title.

However, the former Wolfsburg man might have different plans once that happens.

While speaking to The Sun, de Bruyne outlined his ambitions once the current season is over. With Vincent Kompany now at Anderlecht as a player manager, de Bruyne thinks that he might eventually go for a move to the Belgian giants.

“I’ve told him to keep a place in his team for me in a year, or seven, when I’m finished here,” De Bruyne told the Sun

“If he does do that for me I will already have my next destination lined up; my next job.

“I will definitely miss him being around City. I hope his career will be just as amazing at Anderlecht as it was at City.

“At the time City were trying to sign me from Wolfsburg and Vinny was pushing for me to move to Manchester to play alongside him.

“He would constantly ask me when I was coming. He would say ‘you need to come’, constantly encouraging me to join City.”

Kompany is going to play a testimonial match for his beloved Manchester City on Wednesday against a Premier League all-star XI. De Bruyne will be featuring in that game as well.

The former Chelsea man had an excellent international break where he starred for the national side against Scotland. De Bruyne scored once and provided three assists in what was a relatively easy game for the Red Devils at Hampden Park.
