This means that he will have completed 10 years at the club when his contract expires. Since arriving in 2015, he has grown to become the best player at Manchester City.
His goal and assist contribution make him one of the best midfielders in world football, if not the very best.
“I could not be happier,” De Bruyne told the club website.
“Since joining City in 2015, I have felt at home. I love the fans, my family are settled here in Manchester and my own game has developed really well.
“This football club is geared for success. It offers me everything I need to maximise my performance, so signing this contract was a straightforward decision. I am playing the best football of my career and I honestly feel there is more to come.
“Pep and I see football in the same way. Having that relationship with a manager is so important to me because our objectives are totally aligned and we want the same things.
“My focus now is on ensuring we have a successful end to the current campaign. Our results and performances so far have been excellent, but we need to make sure we end the season with the silverware we deserve.”
Kevin De Bruyne also cites his family’s happiness in the city of Manchester as another reason for not leaving the club. He has 3 children with his wife in the city.
“[My family being settled] is obviously really important,” he said. “I don’t have to just think about myself – I have my wife and three kids.
“We have been really happy here and my kids were born here, so they are basically half Manc!
“They are really happy and the feeling I have with the club is so positive. There was no thought at all about switching teams, so it was fairly easy on my part.
“I feel proud because I’ve been here now for six years and obviously this feels like home,” he said.
“The longest time I’ve been at a club is here.
“To get the extension now at my age feels like a very proud moment because it means they trust me until I get really old in football terms!
“I feel really happy, and my family is also really proud, so that’s really nice.” The midfielder added.
