Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne saved a total of £8million by negotiating a new deal with the English side.
The 29-year-old signed a new four-year deal with City earlier in the week with The Mirror reporting that the Belgian could bank close to £400,000-a-week when bonuses and commercial rights are included.
The report indicates that the total package is set to cost City around £83million and De Bruyne will not be obliged to pay the usual 10 percent agency fees after opting to seal the deal himself following a legal wrangle with his former adviser Patrick De Koster.
Koster is under police investigation after De Bruyne's father Herwig uncovered a number of alleged financial discrepancies last year.
