Wolfsburg star Kevin de Bruyne admits it would be difficult to turn down a move away from his current side should be have the opportunity to join the likes of Manchester City.
De Bruyne has been heavily linked with a move away from Wolfsburg following his stunning performances last season, and The Sun reports City are preparing a bid “in excess” of £40m for the Belgian international.
The report suggests Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in the former Chelsea man, and De Bruyne hinted that he is prepared to make a move should an offer be put forward.
“Of course you can’t ignore it. Everyone knows the teams. They all play for the title. That is not nothing,” De Bruyne is quoted as saying by The Sun.
“But at this moment I have not heard that there is a bid for me.
“If an offer does come, I will hear about it and how much it is — but I have not yet heard anything.”
Wolfsburg boss Dieter Hecking on Sunday stated that he expected the playmaker to remain with the Bundesliga heavyweights.
“We don’t want to sell him. I can understand his statements, but I expect him to stay,” Hecking is quoted as saying by Manchester Evening News.
“We have many interesting players, that is the curse of our success.
“But Kevin noticed again what we can achieve with this team in the next season.”
De Bruyne struggled to make an impact on the Premier League during his stint with Chelsea, however, his performances in the Bundesliga suggest he has markedly improved since.
