Manchester City attacker Kevin De Bruyne has no plans to leave the Etihad Stadium this summer, according to a report.

Manchester City attacker Kevin De Bruyne is reportedly not considering a move away from the Etihad Stadium during this summer's transfer window.

As it stands, City, after this season, will be unable to play Champions League football until the 2022-23 campaign due to their European suspension.

The UEFA punishment had reportedly led to De Bruyne considering his future in Manchester, with Real Madrid thought to be keeping a close eye on developments.

However, according to The Athletic, the Belgium international is happy with Pep Guardiola's side and has no plans to push for a summer exit, even if City are unable to overturn their European ban.

The 28-year-old starred in his team's 2-1 win over Madrid at the Bernabeu on Wednesday night, setting up Gabriel Jesus for the leveller before scoring from the penalty spot to secure a first-leg advantage in the Champions League last-16 clash.

The attacker arrived at the Etihad Stadium from Wolfsburg in the summer of 2015.
