Manchester City are ready to make a £60million bid for the Bundesliga Player of the Year, Kevin De Bruyne, according to reports.
The 22-year old's first spell in the Premier League was cut short by Blues boss Jose Mourinho, as the Portuguese coach felt that the Belgian couldn't cope with the pressure of the Premier League.

The Belgian seemingly got that in abundance last season, where in all competitions he played 51 out of a possible 53 games, bagging 16 goals and 27 assists.
