Kevin De Bruyne arrives at Manchester Airport ahead of £54m transfer to City from Wolfsburg
Kevin De Bruyne has now produced the obligatory airport picture, a staple of any good transfer saga, ahead of completing his 54m pound move to Manchester City
The Belgian playmaker was pictured touching down at Manchester Airport this morning, and this is confirmation if it was needed that the deal is now definitely going ahead.
He is due to complete a medical this afternoon, after which the deal should be signed and made official.
De Bruyne was left out of the Wolfsburg team last night and watched the game from the stand, where fans came to take pictures with him and bid him farewell.
City have been chasing the Belgian’s signature all summer, and were made to work for it, with the Bundesliga side holding out for a 57m pound fee.
But having realized that City weren’t willing to go that high, they relented and decided to agree on 54m pounds, which will still see them make a huge profit on the 18m pounds they paid for him in January 2014.[101greatgoals]
