Manchester City and Belgium midfielder Kevin De Bruyne looks set to sign a new deal extending his stay at the Etihad, putting to bed rumors of interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

De Bruyne has enjoyed a scintillating start to the season, as Manchester City are top and undefeated in both the Premier League and their Champions League group, whilst also qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

He has seen his stock rise since Pep Guardiola became his club manager in 2016 and now looks set to stay in Manchester past his current contract end of 2021, according to Goal.

Rumors, however, have persistently linked the 26-year-old with a move to Paris, both from his time at Wolfsburg and at Manchester City.

Desperate to assemble a squad capable of winning the Champions League, PSG see De Bruyne as a key signing that would complement the recent record-breaking acquisitions Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. 

It seems PSG will miss out on signing the Belgium international, as Manchester City, according to the report, believe a deal to keep De Bruyne is 'very close', that could see him be paid in the region of £250,000 a week. 

Kevin De Bruyne has earned a fearsome reputation since his record-breaking transfer to Manchester City from Wolfsburg for a fee of £55m.
