Kevin-De-Bruyne-WolfsburgManchester City are ready to pay £50million for former Chelsea midfielder Kevin De Bruyne.

The 24-year-old Belgium star has become one of the most coveted players in Europe following a year and a half at Wolfsburg.

And City are prepared to break the bank as they battle with PSG for his signature.

De Bruyne spent two years on Chelsea’s books but was farmed out to Genk and Werder Bremen.

He made just three first team appearances for the Blues – but they were able to make an £11m profit on his after selling him for £18m.

However City are desperate to land De Bruyne as they aim to regain the Premier League title.

City have won the title twice in the last four years but were found wanting last season after Chelsea blew them away.

Last week City were giving a financial boost as UEFA lifted the restrictions placed on them for breaching the rules last season.

And, according to the Telegraph, City are willing to make De Bruyne their record signing – although they are likely to have to pay even more for Paul Pogba if the interest in him is taken further.
