BAYERN PULLED OUT OF DE BRUYNE RACE - AGENT

By 04:12 Thu, 03 Sep 2015 Comments


The midfielder left Wolfsburg for Manchester City

shortly before the end of the transfer window, but

came close to moving to the Allianz Arena.

Kevin De Bruyne's agent has revealed Bayern

Munich were interested in signing his client before

pulling out of a deal earlier this summer.

The midfielder left Wolfsburg for Manchester City in

a €74 million transfer, but the Premier League club

faced competition for his signature prior to sealing

the move.

"We had heard that Bayern were interested so I

phoned the club," Patrick de Koster told Sporza.be.

"Things then accelerated quickly over the next two

days but then Bayern decided not to go ahead with

the transfer.

"I didn't use Bayern to drive up the price - I'm not a

carpet salesman. PSG were also interested, but City

won the race."

De Koster also revealed how City rolled out the red

carpet to ensure they got their star man.

"It was impressive, as in a movie," he continued.

"We flew there with private jets, were picked up in

limousines..."

"We also thought we would have a lot of work to

find a new home, open a bank account, arrange

phone, a car ... but in three hours it was all

arranged. Unbelievable."
