Kevin De Bruyne’s agent, Patrick De Koster, has given some insight into how the Manchester City star came to join the club – and also where he is likely to end up in future.
De Koster, who has a special relationship with his client, explained just how close they are.
“Every day we hear from each other, I even have a tattoo of him,” De Koster told MNM while laughing.
The agent also revealed how 26-year-old De Bruyne came to join City, despite some interest from other European heavyweights.
“The first contacts with City were in February, but the transfer was not until August. The clubs always have to find an agreement first.
“Kevin had a good time in the Bundesliga and saw something in Bayern Munich, but they could not rival the financial strength of PSG and City.
“As a broker, you always try to apply pressure, but I try to respect everyone. We always look for the best solution for the player, financially and sportingly.”
Where will De Bruyne play in future? De Koster has one destination in mind, although the flame-haired playmaker isn’t likely to go there any time soon.
“At the moment, he is very happy at his club (City). Kevin’s future? I see him ending up in Los Angeles.”
That will be music to the ears of LA Galaxy supporters, although if KDB is to end up at the StubHub Center, it isn’t likely to be for quite a while yet.
