This year has not been favorable for Kevin De Bruyne. The Belgian maestro has been sidelined since mid-August, participating in only two matches. He was forced to leave the pitch during his club’s Premier League season opener against Burnley in the 23rd minute. While the midfielder has yet to return to action, he has become the subject of transfer speculation. 

Apparently, Al Nassr is looking to buy a new midfielder as Luis Castro is dissatisfied with Seko Fofana’s display. Hence, in the upcoming winter transfer window, the Saudi Pro League giants will be seeking a fresh midfielder, with Kevin de Bruyne emerging as the top contender. The Knights of Najd are also open to moving for Ronaldo’s former Real Madrid teammate, Casemiro.

Additionally, City is also open to selling the 32-year-old. But they shouldn’t worry about finding a replacement for their magician, as Julian Alvarez will perfectly fill De Bruyne’s shoes.

One take at a time

I first kicked a soccer ball when I was 12. My early exposure to playing the sport earned me many accolades at the zonal and district levels. I still remember my first goal, where I scored a 90+5 minute header like Sergio Ramos did in the 2014 Champions League final against Atletico Madrid.
