Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has dropped a hint that he could quit the club if the Champions League Ban remains, MySportDab reports.
The Belgian also revealed that his future at the Etihad Stadium will not be determined by whether Pep Guardiola stays or leaves the club.
MySportDab understands he is still concerned about UEFA’s decision to ban City from all European competitions for two years after breaching FFP rules.
The 28-year-old is at the peak of his career and could seek leave the Ethiad club if they won’t play in the next two Champions League competition.
“I’m waiting patiently,” De Bruyne said.
“The club said they will appeal and that they are almost sure that they are right. This is why I’m waiting to see what happens. I trust the team.
“Once a statement is made, I will check everything and make a decision. Two years is quite long. If it’s a one year ban, we will see what happens.”
De Bruyne is a very important player in Pep Guardiola’s team and is known as one of the world’s best midfielders right now.
The Belgium star was asked if Guardiola’s plans would affect his future during a chat with HLN and he added: “Not exactly. I think Pep will be here next year, no matter what happens.
“Then his contract will expire. But my decision won’t depend on what Pep is planning to do.
“Yes I have already worked with different trainers and when Pep decides to leave, I have to work under someone else.
“But there are many more important things right now.”
A long list of European clubs would be ready to submit a bid if De Bruyne decides to leave Manchester City this summer.
Real Madrid, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus are all likely to show interest in the talented midfielder.
