Kevin De Bruyne, the Manchester City midfield ace, is one of the most demanded creative midfielders, with Saudi Pro League clubs attempting to lure the Belgian to the Middle East. However, the midfielder made his intentions very clear by turning down the offers this summer.
The Belgian international was a key player in Pep Guardiola’s lineup, with his top-notch performances helping Manchester City retain their league title and secure their maiden Champions League victory. Besides setting up others for scoring goals, De Bruyne has even collaborated on writing a song with the famous rapper Drake.

Kevin De Bruyne has been the standout performer for the Premier League champions, Man City. The 32-year-old moved to the Etihad from the German side Wolfsburg, and since then, he has broken numerous records, registering 358 appearances, making 153 assists, and scoring 96 goals.
The Citizens have bestowed the title of ‘Prince’ upon De Bruyne due to his significant contributions to the club, lifting 5 Premier League titles, 5 League Cups, 2 FA Cups, and the recent historic Champions League trophy. Apart from the team accolades, his individual brilliance earned him the title of Best Player of the Year in England and for the club in 2020 and 2021, respectively.
Presently, the attacking midfielder has been out of action since August due to a severe hamstring injury. The Belgian international, credited as one of the three writers for the single song called ‘Wickman,’ is part of the famous Canadian rapper Drake’s new project album named ‘For All The Dogs – Scary Hours Edition’.
The fans have reacted to this news by saying, “KDB can’t stop assisting,” even outside of the football pitch. Seemingly, the Man City star has put his off-time to good use in the production of music, but it is yet to be confirmed by the music company whether it’s the player or not.
Kevin De Bruyne injury update
Manchester City’s creative maestro is on the road to recovery after suffering a muscle injury carried from the last season, where he walked off limping in the Champions League final. Upon his return in this season’s league opener, a recurrence of the issue against Burnley in August has further pushed him to the sidelines.
De Bruyne has been out of action for the past three months and is currently on the path to recovery, unlikely to make his return before next year.
The player himself claims it as the most serious injury of his career. City boss Guardiola also insists that in the case of such injuries, it is better to be cautious with his return to first-team action instead of rushing.
