Manchester City have confirmed that midfielder Kevin de Bruyne has signed a new deal with the Premier League leaders until 2025.

The Belgian international was on target as City beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in the first leg of their Champions League quarterfinal on Tuesday.

“I could not be happier,” he told City's website on Wednesday. “Since joining City in 2015, I have felt at home. I love the fans, my family are settled here in Manchester and my own game has developed really well.

“This football club is geared for success. It offers me everything I need to maximise my performance, so signing this contract was a straightforward decision. I am playing the best football of my career and I honestly feel there is more to come.

“Pep and I see football in the same way. Having that relationship with a manager is so important to me because our objectives are totally aligned and we want the same things.

“My focus now is on ensuring we have a successful end to the current campaign. Our results and performances so far have been excellent, but we need to make sure we end the season with the silverware we deserve.”

De Bruyne's previous deal was due to expire in 2023.

Since joining City from Wolfsburg, he has won everything in the domestic game but has not yet tasted success in Europe, with Guardiola's side regularly coming up short in the Champions League.

In total, De Bruyne has played 253 times for City, scoring 64 and assisting 105.
