Kevin De Bruyne has pledged his long term future to Manchester City after signing a new and improved contract.
The Belgian superstar has agreed a two-year extension worth £300,000-a-week that will keep him at the Etihad until 2025.
It means De Bruyne, 29, will spend the peak years of his career with City and the news is a huge boost to Pep Guardiola.
De Bruyne has become one of the world's best players and is on course to help City win an historic quadruple haul of trophies this season.
The midfielder believes he can fulfil all his ambitions by staying at the Etihad and help Guardiola create a legacy in the blue half of Manchester.
He said: "I could not be happier. Since joining City in 2015, I have felt at home. I love the fans, my family are settled here in Manchester and my own game has developed really well.
"This football club is geared for success. It offers me everything I need to maximise my performance, so signing this contract was a straightforward decision.
"I am playing the best football of my career and I honestly feel there is more to come.
"Pep and I see football in the same way. Having that relationship with a manager is so important to me because our objectives are totally aligned, and we want the same things.
"My focus now is on ensuring we have a successful end to the current campaign. Our results and performances so far have been excellent, but we need to make sure we end the season with the silverware we deserve."
City director of football Txiki Begiristain said: "This is a very significant moment for this football club.
"Kevin is, without question, one of the best players in world football. His performance level has been remarkably consistent since coming to City, and in the last few years he has developed into one of the game's elite players.
