It brought De Bruyne's 2023/24 campaign to a close - a season that saw him miss the first half through injury.

And he is using the summer to relax in Ibiza as he spends some quality time with his family.

The Man City man was spotted in nothing but a pair of blue swimming shorts on the beautiful beach.

His wife of 10 years, Michele Lacroix, was also pictured in a black bikini.

De Bruyne, who stormed out of a press conference after Belgium's Euros exit, could be seen carrying an inflatable alligator, while he also got involved in some keepy-ups with a beach ball.

De Bruyne and Michele married in 2014 and have three children together.

But it is the Belgian playmaker's future that most Man City fans are interested in during this summer's transfer window.

Reports emerged on Friday that De Bruyne has "verbally agreed" a move to Saudi Arabian side Al-Ittihad.

Italian journalist Rudy Galetti understands members of the Saudi delegation, the Saudi Public Investment Fund, met with De Bruyne's representatives.

He claims that De Bruyne's people have given the green light for the transfer.

It is now down to Al-Ittihad and Man City to agree on a transfer fee.

Jeddah based club Al-Ittihad finished fifth in the Saudi Pro-League last season.

They also failed with a bid to bring Fulham boss Marco Silva in as their new manager this week.

De Bruyne would be joining the likes of Karim Benzema, N'Golo Kante and Fabinho if he were to join.

He has just one year left on his Man City contract.

He appeared open to an Etihad exit when talking about his future recently.

He told Belgian outlet HLN that his wife would be keen on an "exotic adventure" should the opportunity present itself for a move abroad.

He said: "For Michele, an exotic adventure is OK. These are also conversations that we are increasingly having as a family.

"I still have one year left on my contract, so I have to think about what could happen.

"My eldest is now eight years old and knows nothing but England. He also asks how long I will play for City.

"Once the moment comes, we will have to deal with it in a certain way."

Pressed on the idea of moving to the Saudi Pro League, De Bruyne added: "At my age you have to be open to everything.

"You're talking about incredible amounts of money in what may be the end of my career. Sometimes you have to think about that.

"If I play there for two years, I will be able to earn an incredible amount of money.

"Before that, I had to play football for 15 years. I may not even reach that amount yet.

"Then you have to think about what that could mean next. But at the moment I haven't had to think about that yet.
