KEVIN DE BRUYNE will become the highest-paid player in Manchester City’s history on £250,000 per week.

The Etihad midfielder, 26 will surpass team-mates Sergio Aguero and David Silva, who reportedly rake in around £200,000 a week including bonuses.

City were in no rush to tie Belgium’s De Bruyne down to a new deal as he still has three years left on his current deal.

But talks are now poised to take place quickly so the player can remain focused on helping Pep Guardiola’s men battle on four fronts this season.

De Bruyne earns £140,000 a week on his current deal but his outstanding form so far this season has all parties wanting to cement his long-term future in Manchester.
