    Manchester City will be able to talk to Wolfsburg’s Kevin de Bruyne if they match midfielder’s £50m valuation, according to the Daily Mail.

    The Belgian international has been repeatedly linked with a move away from the Volkswagen Arena, with Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly interested in his services.

    The Wolves have already said that the 24-year-old is not for sale, but the report claims that the midfielder has been told that he will be allowed to leave the Bundesliga outfit for a price of around £50m.

    The Sky Blues are happy to pay the fee for the former Chelsea flop, who joined Wolfsburg from the west London club in 2014.

    City have already spent £49m on Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling this summer and could make a similar amount to sign De Bruyne, which could lead their summer spending over £100m.
