The Citizens took another step closer towards winning the title on Sunday when they claimed a dominant 3-1 victory over Everton at Goodison Park.
That result means that Pep Guardiola’s men can now secure the Premier League title with victory against Manchester United at The Etihad next weekend.
Manchester United will be out to try and delay the celebrations for at least another week, with Jose Mourinho’s men currently second in the Premier League table after their 2-0 win over Swansea last weekend.
However, Manchester City attacker De Bruyne has insisted that he and his team-mates are determined to try and help the Citizens win the league against their bitter rivals next weekend and give their fans a day to remember.
De Bruyne is quoted as saying by The Independent: “I think for the fans it would be wonderful.
“Obviously if we don’t make it, we don’t make it, we will have a lot of chances left still. But to make it against United would be special, it would be so nice to go on and win against United.
“For the fans it would something special, something different – you know how it goes between them, you know the history, so it would be historic.”
Manchester United will be hoping to be able to mount a serious Premier League title challenge next season after having fallen short in recent campaigns.
The Red Devils have not won the title since their final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.
