Manchester United legend Gary Neville has hailed the ability of Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne and has named him as one player he would love to see him at Old Trafford.
The Belgian is a strong contender to be named PFA Player of the Year. The Belgian has laid on 18 assists for the season and needs just two more assist to match Thierry Henry’s Premier League record, which was set in 2004.
Neville admits he would have loved to see De Bruyne at the Theatre of Dreams.
“I watched Kevin De Bruyne last night [against Newcastle] and just felt blessed,” Neville told the Next Goal Wins podcast.
“Every time I watch him play I feel privileged to be in the ground. He is absolutely amazing. He’s a beautiful thing on a football pitch.
“He wears a blue shirt, I don’t like that he wears a blue shirt. I wish it was a Manchester United red shirt but it’s not so you just have to watch him and marvel and think ‘Wow, what a player’.”
De Bruyne has three years to run on his existing deal at the Etihad.
