De Bruyne had 'agreement' with Bayern

Kevin De Bruyne had a personal agreement to sign for Bayern Munich before joining Manchester City, according to his agent.

The Belgian signed for City in a £54.5m deal from Wolfsburg, but his agent, Patrick De Koster, has revealed that De Bruyne was close to remaining in Germany, with only Bayern’s refusal to go above their €50m valuation preventing the move.

"Kevin's heart was beating for the Bundesliga, where he broke through at Bremen and became a star at Wolfsburg," De Koster told SportFootMagazine.

"I'm convinced he would have played for Bayern if they had been able to pay the asking price.

"We reached a personal agreement with Bayern after two meetings. The deal collapsed on the asking price.

"I think that Bayern wanted to pay 50m euros, but not a euro more."

However, De Koster is adamant that the 24-year-old is happy in Manchester and has proved this with his performances on the pitch.

"In the end City won the race and Kevin is super happy with his move," he added. "He adapted fast on and off the pitch."
