De Bruyne believes the new terms do not reflect his standing at the club or the service he has given since he joined in 2015.

But he currently earns about £300,000 a week and has two-and-a-half years left on his deal.

Sunsport reported on Tuesday that City were confident it would get resolved and that KdB would commit his future to the club.

And manager Guardiola has confirmed that is the current situation.

He said: “I’m pretty sure he will stay but at the same time we have to respect the process.

"I don’t know what’s going on because I didn’t speak with our director of football Txiki Begiristain.

"But he knows how we appreciate him – not just as a football player but also as a person and how important he is at the club.

"I’m not worried but of course in the end it is his decision.”

De Bruyne has been at City since 2015 after joining from Wolfsburg for £55million.

Since then, the Belgian has scored 60 goals in 240 games to become one of the league’s top stars.

De Bruyne was instrumental in Guardiola’s two title wins, and has also won the FA Cup and four Carabao Cups.
