We did not see this one coming.
According to The Guardian, a usually reliable source, Manchester City had agreed both the transfer fee and wage for Kevin de Bruyne.
Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allofs has another say in the matter, having announced this afternoon that the move will not proceed ‘at this point in time’.
Klaus Allofs: ''No agreement with MCFC. We're talking but still not on the same line.'' #wob

Allofs mentioned that there would be two choices for de Bruyne’s career in the near future, to stay with Wolfsburg or move to Manchester City.
This supposed transfer has been moving along glacially all month and now it looks set to drag on further, unless the Citizen’s can convince Allofs and Wolfsburg to take the £54m for their Belgian star.
However, what has been noticed by desperate City fans is the use of the phrase ‘at this point in time’.
The point being made is, if Wolfsburg downright refused to part ways with their player they would simply say ‘not for sale, at any price’.
Instead, there is room for a deal to be bashed out before the window closes next Tuesday at 6 pm.
Could de Bruyne’s move decide the title or will Chelsea retain the Premier League trophy?
