Representatives of Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne reportedly meet with 10 Saudi Arabian clubs ahead of the summer transfer window.

The representatives of Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne have reportedly met with 10 Saudi Arabian sides.

De Bruyne enjoyed another productive campaign with the Citizens despite missing the first half of the season with a hamstring injury.

The Belgium international scored four goals and provided 10 assists in 18 top-flight appearances to help Man City claim a record fourth consecutive Premier League title.

As a result of those contributions, De Bruyne has now registered a total of 112 assists in the top flight, leaving him in second place in the all-time Premier League assist chart.

While he continues to play a key role for Pep Guardiola's side, there is uncertainty surrounding De Bruyne's long-term future at the Etihad Stadium.

De Bruyne representatives meet with Saudi Arabian clubs

With just one year left to run on his contract, De Bruyne will be free to speak to foreign clubs about a pre-contract agreement from January 2025.

The Saudi Pro League are believed to be plotting a move to sign De Bruyne and Liverpool's Mohamed Salah on free transfers in June 2025.

According to The Mirror, De Bruyne's advisors travelled to the Middle East last week to meet with 10 Saudi Arabian clubs.

Roc Nation Sports, who are representing De Bruyne, also manage other high-profile footballers, including Real Madrid's Vinicius Junior, Arsenal's Gabriel Martinelli and West Ham United's Lucas Paqueta.

The agency's representatives Alan Redmond and Renato Martinez reportedly held discussions with the likes of Al-Hilal, Al-Nassr and Al-Ittihad.

Al-Hilal hope that De Bruyne makes a big-money move this summer, despite the Belgian's reluctance to join the Saudi Pro League.

De Bruyne keen to sign new Man City deal

There is a belief that De Bruyne is targeting a future move to MLS instead of following in the footsteps of his former Man City teammates Riyad Mahrez and Aymeric Laporte following their transfers to Saudi Arabia last summer.

De Bruyne's plan is to seemingly extend his stay with Man City, before moving to MLS in the closing stages of his career.

Saudi Arabian clubs are also believed to be looking at De Bruyne's Man City colleagues Ederson and Bernardo Silva.

Al-Ittihad are preparing to table a bid for Ederson, while Silva has previously been linked with a move to Al-Hilal.
