Manchester City appear set to reward Kevin de Bruyne’s fine form this season by offering the Belgian a new long-term contract at the Etihad Stadium.
Many see the playmaker as the perfect man to win Player of the Year after a fine campaign that has seen him inspire City to a huge lead atop the Premier League.
Pep Guardiola’s men are 12 points clear and have lost just once in the league. An unprecedented quadruple remains possible, thanks in no small part to de Bruyne, who has become a fan’s favourite since arriving from Wolfsburg for £54million in 2015.

The 26-year-old’s new deal will see him earn a staggering £260,000-per-week, a figure which City will hope can keep him at the club for the next six years.
Both the club and the player now turn their attention to the Carabao Cup semi final against Bristol City this week.
