Man City skipper Vincent Kompany: Former Chelsea midfielder Kevin De Bruyne is phenomenal

City have been chasing the Wolfsburg and Belgium attacking midfielder all summer.

But according to the German side they face competition from Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Real Madrid for De Bruyne.

Despite the interest from the trio of European heavyweights, City remain confident they are closing in on a deal worth around £47m for the former Chelsea man.

And compatriot Kompany would be delighted if De Bruyne arrived at the Etihad Stadium this summer.

The City captain said: ”Let’s put it this way, he definitely wouldn’t make the team weaker.

”Any team he goes to he will make them stronger. He’s a phenomenal player. A complete player.”

Determined to drive a hard bargain for De Bruyne, Wolsfburg manager Dieter Hecking said: ”Despite my esteem for Manchester City, I have to say that Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Barcelona have all expressed an interest in Kevin de Bruyne and there have been approaches for him.

”He will only leave if there is an extraordinary offer for him. I am not ruling anything out and we will listen to offers, but in reality we could allow him to leave for a huge offer.”
