Manchester City are preparing a huge bid of €72 million for VFL Wolfsburg attacking midfielder Kevin de Bruyne, according German broadcaster Sport 1.

The 24 year old former Chelsea midfielder has attracted interest from many top European clubs for his impressive display for Wolfsburg.

Manchester City are after the Belgian throughout this summer and recent reports suggest that they are frontrunners to get his signature.

Manchester City are also ready to offer the Belgian a lucrative deal which will make him one of the highest paid players in the Premier League.

Wolfsburg has been insisting that the player is not for sale and the club sporting director, Klaus Allofs, refused to participate in the rumours surrounding their midfielder.

He stressed that the club are yet to receive any concrete offers for De Bruyne and will only react when one lands at their door.

The Wolfsburg sporting director was quoted as saying: “We do not indulge in transfer games.”

When someone comes with such an offer, which hasn’t happened yet, then we will think about it.

De Bruyne scored 16 goals and provided 28 assists in all competitions last season and still has four years left on his contract with the club.

He was awarded Bundesliga Player of the Year in 2014-15 season.

The attacking midfielder also featured in Bundesliga Team of the Season and Europa League team of the Season.

He won DFB Pokal with Wolfsburg last season and finished second in Bundesliga.

The former Genk midfielder will be the sixth signing at Etihad if the deal goes through after big signings like Raheem Sterling and Fabian Delph.
