‘Get Kevin De Bruyne to feed Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe’: Manchester City’s former coach tells Paris Saint-Germain to make move
- Kevin De Bruyne is one of Manchester City’s main men under Pep Guardiola
- The 28-year-old has plied his trade at the Etihad Stadium since 2015
- The Belgian’s former Genk coach believes he would be a good fit at PSG
Kevin De Bruyne’s former Genk coach believes he would be the perfect fit at Ligue 1 moneybags Paris Saint-Germain if he was to leave Manchester City.
Hein Vanhaezebrouck believes the midfielder would be the perfect provider of goals for their attacking trio of Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe.
De Bruyne is one of the first names on Pep Guardiola’s teamsheet but Vanhaezebrouck has suggested a move to France could see him land the Ballon d’Or gong.
Kevin De Bruyne should think about sealing a move to PSG, according to his former coach
Vanhaezebrouck told Het Nieuwsblad: ‘Kevin has won two league titles and various English cups with Manchester City, and he’s been named player of the season in Germany.
‘But he has never won anything internationally. No Europa League, no Champions League, no World Cup – and these are the things that are always taken into account.
‘As soon as he wins one of these prizes I have no doubt that he will be in the running for the FIFA player of the year award and the Ballon d’Or trophy.
‘He could yet do it with City – but with the defence they’ve got I am not convinced.
‘I’m not saying that it would be easier for him to win the Champions League with Barcelona or Real Madrid.
‘But to my mind it would be if he played for Paris Saint-Germain. Get De Bruyne to feed Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe with his pinpoint passes, and you have a team that is virtually impossible to play against.
‘The one problem is that it may not suit him to play in Ligue 1. At PSG he would earn even more money than he does now.’
