Manchester City have put a price tag on midfielder Kevin De Bruyne amid interest from the Saudi League.

De Bruyne is reportedly a target for Al-Nassr ahead of a potential move next summer, with the Saudi club said to be confident they can persuade the City legend to leave European football.

A move to the Saudi League to Al-Nassr would see him join Cristiano Ronaldo and Sadio Mane and also reunite with former City team-mate Aymeric Laporte, who moved to the Middle East in the summer.

According to expert Fabrizio Romano, De Bruyne turned down offers from Saudi Arabia in the summer in favor of staying at City.

The 2023/24 season, however, has not gone to plan for the 32-year-old, who picked up an injury in the Premier League opener against Burnley and has not played since.

Now, England claim City are open to cashing in on the midfielder before his contract expires in the summer of 2025.

It is reported that Pep Guardiola’s side will demand a fee of just £60 million to sell the Belgian, despite his status as one of the best players in the world.

That amount likely won’t be too much of a problem for the Saudi League, with the report also claiming that the 2024 summer transfer window will be one of the biggest transfer windows in terms of money spent.
