De Bruyne continues to put in impressive displays for Pep Guardiola’s side, both in attack and defensively.

Kevin Horlock has heaped praise on midfield maestro Kevin De Bruyne, saying the Belgian is a complete midfielder.

Horlock, a former Manchester City star, has no doubt De Bruyne is currently the best midfielder on the planet.

The former Chelsea and Wolfsburg player continues to be one of the most influential players in Europe since joining City in 2015.

And, ex-Northern Ireland international says De Bruyne would be the perfect player to create if scientists could make a replica in the laboratory.

“For me it’s plain and simple, he is the best midfielder in the world,” he told Man City's official website.

“He’s got everything. Football intelligence, where to be, when to be there, his balance, he can go anywhere, left foot, right foot. Where do you stop with this lad?

“He is the best. He would go into any team and make them better. He’s incredible. He’s a dream to watch and must be an even bigger dream to play with.

“If scientists made a complete midfielder in a laboratory, they’d make De Bruyne.

“His work-rate out of possession and his willingness to win the ball back, people don’t talk about that with flair players, but he’s just got the lot.”
