Kevin-De-Bruyne-Wolfsburg1Manchester City are closing in on a deal for Kevin De Bruyne, according to reports.

The Manchester Evening News claim City are “homing in” on the Wolfsburg star, with the German club demanding £60million.

The club’s football director, Txiki Begiristain, is reported to have delayed a flight bound for the club’s pre-season tour to continue negotiations for the Belgium international.

De Bruyne has also been linked with a move to Manchester United but City appear to be at the front of the queue.

Following a difficult spell at Chelsea, the 24-year-old has become one of Europe’s hottest properties after rebuilding his reputation since a permanent switch to Wolfsburg last summer.

He scored 13 goals in 50 appearances in all competitions last season, helping his side to a second-place Bundesliga finish and the German Cup.

City boss Manuel Pellegrini shows no sign of halting his summer spending spree after securing the services of Raheem Sterling for £49million.

They have also been linked with a £71m bid for Paul Pogba.
