Known as one of the continent’s assist kings, Kevin De Bruyne arrived at City with a huge reputation…

Kevin’s creativity and eye for defence splitting passes and crosses prompted City to sign the Belgian international in the summer transfer window of 2015/16.

Beginning his career at Belgium side Genk, De Bruyne quickly worked his way into the starting selection in the Pro League outfit, becoming an integral part of their title-winning side, making 17 assists in all competitions and scoring six goals.

De Bruyne moved to Chelsea after nine years on Genk’s books but it was when he moved to VFL Wolfsburg Kevin really flourished.

The playmaker broke a Bundesliga record for most assists with 21 in 2014/15, with his incredible contribution helping them finish second in the Bundesliga and to win the German Cup.

His efforts led to him receiving the Bundesliga Player of the Year award, as well as the Footballer of the Year award in Germany.

Kevin also made a big impression on the international stage at the World Cup in 2014.

De Bruyne was the supplier for Marouane Fellaini’s equaliser in their opening game Algeria and he scored Belgium's opening goal in the third minute of extra time as they defeated the United States 2–1 in the Round of 16.
