Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has said that he supported Liverpool while growing up, but does that mean that he could move to Jurgen Klopp’s side?
Speaking to a group of children via Football Escapes on Instagram, Manchester City and Belgium international midfielder Kevin De Bruyne said that he was a Liverpool fan growing up.
The 32-year-old was then asked if he could move to Liverpool.
The former Chelsea player said that he would not.

When asked which club he supported, De Bruyne said: “When I was young, Liverpool.”
The City star was then asked if he would be signing for Liverpool.
De Bruyne laughed and said: “No. No.”
My View: Kevin De Bruyne better than Liverpool midfielders
In my opinion, Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne is a much better midfielder than any of the players Liverpool have got in that position.
De Bruyne, who is injured at the moment, is a world-class player and is a Premier League legend.
I believe that the £400,000-a-week (Spotrac) 32-year-old is one of the best midfielders to have ever played in the Premier League.
And, he is not showing any signs of slowing down yet.
De Bruyne remains a key figure for City, who won the Premier League, the UEFA Champions League and the FA Cup last season.
The midfielder has made 243 appearances in the Premier League so far in his career.
De Bruyne has scored 64 goals and given 102 assists in those games.
The midfielder has won the Premier League Player of the Season award twice and has clinched the league title as many as five times.
De Bruyne is 32 now, and I think that he still has a fair few years left in him at the highest level.
