Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne has opened up on a potential summer move to Saudi Arabia.

Kevin De Bruyne has rocked Manchester City with recent comments after being linked with a move to the oil-rich Saudi Arabia.

The Belgium international, who has been one of the best footballers in the world for the past 5 years, will turn 33 in June, and believes the end of his career is close.

He moved to the Etihad in August 2015 and is viewed as one of the champions’ greatest ever players.

While De Bruyne massive £400,000 a week salary puts him at the top of the list for Premier League's highest earners, the allure of Saudi Arabia is clearly too much to ignore.

“At my age you have to be open to everything,” he told Belgian newspaper HLN.

“You’re talking about incredible amounts of money in what may be the end of my career. Sometimes you have to think about that.

"If I play there for two years, I will be able to earn an incredible amount of money. Before that I had to play football for 15 years. I may not even reach that amount yet.

“Then you have to think about what that could mean next. But at the moment I haven’t had to think about that yet.”
