“I'm happy in Manchester, I'm at a good club (with) good owners,” De Bruyne told VTM Nieuws before Belgium beat England 2-0 in Sunday's Nations League encounter.

“We are a bit in talks, not advanced. At the moment I am doing the talks myself.

 

“I would like to stay with the club, so it's easy. If I didn't want to stay, it would take someone to mediate. But when you want to stay, it's not so difficult,” he added.
