Manchester City midfield wizard Kevin De Bruyne put pen to paper on a contract on Wednesday, and the process details have somewhat defied the status quo.
As reported here on Futaa, the 29-year-old Belgian deservedly earned himself a two-year deal extension.
According to the leading Italian transfer reporter expert, Fabrizio Romano, De Bruyne’s business was done without the expertise of an agent - an event that is extremely uncharacteristic of today’s game.
Kevin de Bruyne has negotiated his new Manchester City contract *without* any agent involved. It’s something very rare, maybe incredible in today’s football.

Meanwhile, De Bruyne and the league-topping Cityzens will welcome Leeds United to the Etihad this weekend for some Premier League action.
