Kevin De Bruyne marked his return to the Premier League with a stunning goal and assist against Newcastle.

The 32-year-old still remains a key player for Manchester City, and his contract will wind up in 2025.

There have been talks surrounding the 32-year-olds long-term future, with the Belgian having been at the Etihad Stadium since 2015.

Manchester City are expected to enter fresh contract talks with the midfielder, who will be 34 when his current contract ends.

Former Chelsea and Arsenal midfielder, Cesc Fabregas, believes that De Bruyne could evolve and play a deeper midfield role in future to elongate his career.

Fabregas said: “He’s one of these players that can adapt in future, when he starts losing physicality, speed, he will be able to play in [defensive] midfield, I have no doubt, a double-pivot for example next to Rodri and run things from there.

“Because that’s what special and intelligent players do when they get older and they are not as sharp as they used to be.”
