Manchester City have completed the signing of former Chelsea and Wolfsburg playmaker Kevin De Bruyne in a club record deal, according to BBC Sport.
The 24-year-old has signed a six-year deal at the Etihad (via BBC Sport), with the Daily Star previously suggesting that the Citizens were set to pay the Bundesliga side £58m for his signature.
De Bruyne – who will wear the number 17 shirt for his new club (via club’s official website) – revealed that he wanted to help the side win as many titles as possible (via official website).
“I want to reach the highest level possible as a player and I think the most important thing is that at the end of the season we can be happy and maybe have some titles,” he said.
The completed deal is likely to see Manuel Pellegrini’s side strengthen their position as title favourites following their lightning start to the new Premier League campaign.
Having won their first four games – including a stunning victory over Chelsea – without conceding a goal, the addition of the man that managed a staggering 20 assists and ten goals last season in the German top flight should make them the overwhelming favourites to be lifting the title at the end of the season.
