According to the report, Sutherland, who plays as a left winger, has proven to be very talented and could become a great figure. In addition, Manchester City are reportedly looking for a replacement for Kevin De Bruyne, who is currently one of the club's biggest stars, but recent injuries have caused him to miss many games and this has been reflected in his market value. According to Transfermarkt, the 32-year-old Belgian player is currently worth €60 million, but his peak value reached €150 million in 2019.

In addition, according to Sky Sports, Al-Nassr, the team to which Cristiano Ronaldo belongs, would have approached De Bruyne's representative about his situation at Manchester City in October 2023. The Saudi club's intention would be to join the Belgian with the Portuguese and to do so they would try to seduce the Manchester City star with a millionaire contract that would offer him much more than the $21.9 million a year he currently earns in the Premier League, according to data from Salary Sport.

It is worth noting that Kevin De Bruyne is under contract with the Citizens until 2025, so this summer could be the last chance to sell him and get a good amount in return. And is that in December this year, the Belgian could negotiate with any club in the world to leave for free once his contract expires. Sky Sports assured that Al-Nassr's offer to convince Manchester City to sell their player would be 70 million euros, although for now there have been no formal offers.
