Kevin De Bruyne is a Belgian professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for English Premier League club Manchester City and the Belgium national team. He is often described as one of the best modern day playmakers due to his wide range of passing and long-range shooting skills.
De Bruyne began his career at Genk, where he was a regular player when they won the 2010–11 Belgian Pro League. In 2012 he joined English club Chelsea, where he was used sparingly and then loaned to Werder Bremen. He signed with Wolfsburg for £18 million in 2014, and in 2015 he was named Footballer of the Year in Germany. Later that year, he joined Manchester City for a club record £55 million.
De Bruyne made his full international debut in 2010, and earned over 30 caps for Belgium. He was part of the Belgian squad that reached the quarter-finals of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
