“Signing this contract is an immediate decision. This football team is built for success. It provides me with everything I need to maximize my talents,” Kevin de Bruyne announced a contract extension with Manchester City until 2025.
The predecessors of Genk, Chelsea, Bremen and Wolfsburg “maximized his performance” with this letter. According to “Sports”, Belgian International hired a team of “big data” experts to calculate its value.
“De Bruyne was able to show Manchester City his lasting value as the most influential player through the collected data and use it to negotiate a substantial salary increase under the terms of the new deal,” Ensure the “Daily Mirror”. In this way, the “KDB” with a weekly income of 400,000 euros will receive 462,000, or about 24 million euros per year. Therefore, he will continue to be Manchester City’s highest paid player.
Numbers determine your value. Since taking office in 2015, the Premier League “MVP” of the 2019-20 season has scored 65 goals and sent 101 assists in 255 games. Made a decisive contribution, so that during that period, the “Sky Blues” conquered two leagues, one cup, four League Cups and one English Super Cup.
But the Belgian not only wants to know his contribution. He also commissioned a data analyst to study the potential for Manchester City’s future success. According to the player’s age and worth… and compare it with European superstars.
“Big data” is not the only surprising fact that de Bruyne renovated. The “organizer” in New York City personally led the club to carry out the renovation. Remember, you do not have an agent. His former representative, Patrick de Koster, was arrested in August 2020 after the player himself condemned him for money laundering and forged documents.
“I’m in a good club. Good owner. Good club. We are just talking about topics, not advanced (…) If I don’t want to stay, then someone needs to mediate. But when you want to stay, it’s not so difficult.”De Bruyne himself claimed himself in November.
This is true. De Bruyne and the “citizen” personally negotiated his contract to prove his renewal. His father Herwig and his lawyer accompanied him “distantly”. His father admitted: “Kevin knows very well what he wants. He keeps going and we follow him.”
