It is important to note that Liverpool have not genuinely been linked with a move for the 30-year-old.
"I think in the past two or three years he’s certainly been the best midfield player in the world.
"People say Liverpool lack creativity in midfield, and I think that’s a bit harsh because I think Liverpool get their creativity from different areas and with the way the team is set-up.
“The midfield three do a lot of work for the front-three and the full-backs.
"So they have a job to do and they do it well, but I just think De Bruyne is sensational in that right channel, maybe he’d get in the way of Trent, I don’t know, but De Bruyne is the first one that springs to mind.”
Anfield Watch Verdict
De Bruyne is a brilliant footballer. The midfielder has scored 74 goals and registered 111 assists in 287 appearances for Manchester City's first-team.
De Bruyne has also been averaging a WhoScored player rating of 7.32 in the Premier League this season.
Therefore, we would also love to see Liverpool sign the 30-year-old. But, we are realistic.
De Bruyne is challenging for every trophy at Manchester City, so he has no reason to leave the club anytime soon.
