De Bruyne said City were about creating a distinct playing philosophy as well as winning and that, whether they secure the quadruple or not, their football is something to salivate over.
"With De Bruyne, if you have a player knocking on your door and crying every day he wants to leave, you have to make a decision", said Mourinho. The plan was always for me to go on loan for a bit'.
