Kevin De Bruyne has no plans to leave Manchester City, saying he can see himself remaining at the Premier League club for a "long time." Belgian star De Bruyne has established himself as one of the best players in England and the world since returning to the Premier League via Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg in 2015.

Former Chelsea attacker De Bruyne has four years remaining on the six-year contract he signed with City and the 26-year-old is loving life under manager Pep Guardiola. "Since Pep came to the club, he plays a style of football I like to play, so it makes it easy as a player," De Bruyne told Sky Sports.

"I like it here, it is the perfect environment and since I came here there has been a lot of trust in me. I like the project they are doing from the moment I came here. There was an older team [when I first arrived], they did a lot of transfers, a lot of young people, they are building for the future. I like the project and I am really happy here and I see myself being a long time here."

De Bruyne has scored once and amassed six assists in 10 Premier League matches as City tops the standings by five points. City, which overcame Napoli 4-2 in a Champions League thriller midweek, welcomes Arsenal to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
