Liverpool told to make approach for Man City key man

Former Liverpool forward Stan Collymore has told Kevin De Bruyne to quit Manchester City and has suggested that the Belgium international should move to the Reds.

The European title is the one most desired by the club’s hierarchy, supporters, and players, and after losing out on it again, and in such an embarrassing fashion, Stan believes that Kevin will want to switch to a club that has a better chance of lifting the trophy.

‘I can’t help wondering if it has crossed his [De Bruyne’s] mind that it might be time for a change. As a player, you know when you walk off the pitch whether or not you have had the impact you wanted to have on a game,’ he told Mirror Sport.

‘And after City’s Champions League exit, I’m sure De Bruyne will have been looking around thinking, “Are other people as good as I am? Will they help get me to where I need to be? Do I need to go to a club which is a routine winning machine?”

‘His effectiveness in the biggest one-off games for club and country is actually very poor and maybe it’s time for him to go to a Liverpool, Real Madrid, Barcelona or Bayern Munich, a club, or more importantly organisation, that has that winning mentality which gets the best out of him.’
