His elegant style, passing ability and crystal clear vision separate the current Manchester City star from the rest. He is a complete footballer, able to use both of his feet equally well. He can dribble, score long range goals and set up his teammates with pinpoint accuracy.

Kevin De Bruyne started his career in the youth ranks of Genk and was promoted to the first team in 2008. After his outstanding performances Chelsea came knocking and signed him in 2012. 'The Ginger Pele', as he is nicknamed in his native Belgium, did not have a great spell in London and was loaned to Werder Bremen for a year. He played under Jose Mourinho again at Chelsea, but did not get the desired minutes on the pitch. A move to Wolfsburg followed in 2014 where Kevin established himself as a star player and won the Bundesliga player of the year award. A club record fee paid and a contract with Manchester City was the next step in Kevin De Bruyne's career and he has played there since. He has won three Premier League titles and numerous personal awards for his performances during his time in Manchester.

Kevin De Bruyne made his debut for Belgium national team in 2010 where he has been a part of the golden generation including stars like Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois.
