- Man City are banned from the UEFA competitions for the next two seasons.
- The Citizens have appealed the decision in CAS.
- The 28-year-old recently claimed he'll consider his future at the Etihad if the ban is upheld or reduced to one year.
- Juventus are ready to make a move for the midfielder if he decides to leave Manchester.
- The Belgian's priority, on the other hand, has always been a move to the Bernabeu.
Juventus are interested in signing Man City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne as the Belgian considers leaving the Premier League champions due to their two-year ban from Champions League, according to Bild.
As per the average German source, the 28-year-old will rather join Real Madrid as a move to the Bernabeu has always been a priority for him.
The Citizens are currently banned from the UEFA competitions for the next two seasons but they have appealed the decision in Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
If the ban isn't cancelled or reduced to one year, the Belgium international will consider his future in Manchester.
"I'm just waiting," De Bruyne said earlier this month. "The club have told us they're going to appeal and that they are 100 per cent right. That's why I'm waiting to see what will happen.
"I trust my team. Once the statement is made, I will analyse everything. Two years [without European football] would be too long but in the case of one year, I will see."
De Bruyne's best goals for City in 2019:
De Bruyne has been among the world's best playmakers ever since joining City from Wolfsburg in 2015.
With all due respect to the Madrid midfield, the Belgian stands head and shoulders above Kroos, Modric and others so his arrival would be a massive boost for Zinedine Zidane's men.
