Kevin De Bruyne has revealed he would like to join his former club team-mate Vincent Kompany at Anderlecht when he leaves Manchester City.

Kompany returned to his boyhood side in Belgium on a three-year-deal earlier this summer after playing 360 games in 11 successful years at City.

The Belgian duo won two Premier League titles, one FA Cup, and three League Cups together in four seasons at City under managers Manuel Pellegrini and Pep Guardiola.

De Bruyne told The Sun: "I hope his [Kompany's] career will be just as amazing at Anderlecht as it was at City. I've told him to keep a place in his team for me in a year, or seven, when I'm finished here.
