Kevin De Bruyne: Player History, Team Signings, and Honors

Kevin De Bruyne History

For a few years, it looked like De Bruyne was a promising talent set to never quite meet his potential. As is so often the case with the West London club, though, once Chelsea moved him on, he started to show what all the hype was originally about.

Belgian Beginnings

De Bruyne’s career started at KVV Drongen in Belgium, where he grew up. His talent for his age quickly became a talking point of Belgian football, and Genk came in to provide him with his first opportunity to play on the professional stage.

Between 2008 and 2012, he became the side’s star player, arousing the interest of European scouts and showing off his goal scoring ability from midfield.

First Move to England

Despite being a lifetime Liverpool fan, it was Chelsea that would come in to give De Bruyne his first opportunity to show his talent off at a higher level.

He spent most of his time at Chelsea on loan at Werder Bremen. He did well at the German club, scoring 10 goals in 33 appearances overall. Despite this, he was never really given a chance at Chelsea when he returned from loan. And when he moved to Germany permanently with VFL Wolfsburg in 2014, he had made just 3 appearances for The Blues.

Showing Germany His Moves

With some stability coming after the permanent transfer to Wolfsburg, De Bruyne got an excellent opportunity to develop his game. In the 2014-15 season, he started to make top European sides take notice again as he scored 16 goals and provided 27 assists in all competitions, with his efforts being enough to win him the 2015 Germany Footballer of the Year award.

Over the 2015-16 season, De Bruyne’s performances continued to impress, and it became clear that a move to an elite club was inevitable.

Become Manchester City’s Main Man

In August 2015, the Citizens landed Kevin De Bruyne in what was a reported £55 million deal. The following October, his arrival on the elite stage was solidified when the Ballon D’or announced him as one of the players on their 23-man shortlist for that year’s winner.

In Manchester, the Belgian has gone from strength to strength. Initially, it seemed like injuries may prevent him from ever getting into his stride, but a few years and a glut of domestic trophies later, De Bruyne looks to be one of the club’s best-ever signings.

In his time as City’s main playmaker, he’s not only driven his team to unmatched success in England but also received a stream of personal awards. He won numerous player of the season awards for 2019-20, with the PFA Player’s Player of the Year award being won again in 2020-21.

Kevin De Bruyne’s time spearheading Manchester City’s golden age has coincided with his essential role in Belgium’s golden generation. His 93 appearances for his country have had many highs and lows, with the side sometimes failing to match the hopes of what is widely considered the country’s best-ever group of players. Will that be enough to take Belgium to the Final in Qatar for 2022 World Cup
