Manchester United to copy Manchester City, what they’d pay for the new De Bruyne

The Red Devils are open to start a bidding war to secure the player’s arrival

Manchester United would be keen on signing the new De Bruyne to follow Manchester City's style.

INEOS’ project at Manchester United could start to take shape in the next few months, as the Red Devils would be willing to emulate the style developed by Manchester City in the last few years by following some of the most important and iconic steps given by the Citizen since the arrival of City Group to the institution.

In this sense, the project headed by the British billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe would have started by signing the executive Omar Berrada, a crucial piece on Manchester City’s success who already joined the Red Devils as the new CEO of the institution, ready to make a sensational progress in several areas in the team.

In addition, INEOS’ board would be developing a plan to sign some of the best players in the world during the next few months, and according to the site Football Transfers, they would start by signing a player labeled as the new De Bruyne, clearly emulating the path developed by Manchester City in 2015 to become one of the best teams in English and world football at a medium term.

United could execute the player’s release clause in the summer

The player in question would be the 19-year-old Moroccan playmaker Bilal El Khannouss, compared to the Belgian superstar due to his great performances with KRC Genk, the former team of De Bruyne where the Belgian player got famous before joining Chelsea in 2012. At his early age, El Khannouss would have started to follow the Belgian steps and has made a significant impact at Genk, showcasing his talent in 76 appearances, scoring four goals and providing ten assists, which would have made United to put their eyes on him ahead of the summer transfer window, when they could execute the release clause of the player worth around €30 million to take him to Old Trafford.
