Kevin De Bruyne’s agent claims he will use Neymar and Kylian Mbappé as benchmarks when negotiating a new contract for the Manchester City midfielder.
City are understood to be paying De Bruyne in the region of €130,000 per week at present, but his representative Patrick De Koster believes the astronomical contracts handed to PSG duo Neymar and Mbappé this year provide relevant guidance for his client’s value.
The Brazilian superstar reportedly earns in the region of €600,000 weekly at the Parc des Princes and De Koster is inclined to see De Bruyne in the same company.
‘In the coming months, I’ll meet with City to figure out how to improve and extend his contract,’ he said, as quoted by The Sun.
‘His salary? I cannot say. But if you think what Neymar and Kylian Mbappe are being paid, you can picture.’
