"I think he will do very well. Everyone knows what his qualities are and he will do what he has to do," De Bruyne told reporters after the first ever Manchester derby outside England.

"There's a lot said about these big transfers, people mock him and other players on social media. You know it's there but you just can't care about that.

"You just have to do your job and I think he will score 20-25 goals for United a season and that will speak for itself.

"If you see his ratio of goals, it's incredible. He's one of the best in the world and what is he, 24? You can say that about him at that age.

"Obviously he has his way of playing. Don't compare him to a Messi. He's a big physical guy and can be awesome."

Manchester City has invested much in the midfield this summer and with that great competition for De Bruyne, as Bernardo Silva, And Phil Foden
"Since I've been here we've seen a lot of change. We bought a lot of young players, we have a little project coming on," added De Bruyne, who joined City from German club Wolfsburg in 2015.

"I now feel like I'm one of the older ones and I'm only 26 so it's nice to see that there's so much young talent around now.

"[Foden] is very good. He did really well [against United] and he has a big future. He can be one of the big players but he's only 17.

"I haven't seen [Bernardo] yet. I think he's played most seasons for Monaco on the right -- but he can play in the middle. We play a lot of games and it's always necessary to have competition.

"We have Raheem [Sterling], Leroy [Sane], Patrick [Roberts] -- a lot of guys who can play wide too. I'm ready to do what I can."

The City Midfielder believes their performance against Manchester United won't repeat it's self against Real Madrid on Wednesday, it will greatly improve

"It was only the first game. We tried to play a good game but in the end maybe United were a little bit sharper than us. The way we played was great, but it was the first game," he said. "We need to go into these games fully. because we need to prepare.

"This year we want to win trophies -- and that's what we need to do as a club like City -- but we are not the only one with that aspiration. There are six or seven others as well."
