MANCHESTER City captain Kevin De Bruyne splashed out £130,000 on solid gold cased iPhones ahead of the start of the Premier League today.
The midfielder gifted the 26-strong squad the posh phones ahead of their match with Burnley at Turf Moor.
The iPhones worth £5,000 each were made by world-leading custom mobile designers iDesign Gold.
He arranged for all the iPhone 14’s to be engraved with the player’s name and club logo.
De Bruyne, 32, also handed one over to his boss Pep Guardiola.
A source said: “It was a touch of class by Kevin, who wanted to show his appreciation for the team.
“He wanted to inspire them to the same success with a little lift ahead of the Burnley clash.”
The Belgian international said: “I’ve been working with IDG for a few years and I really admire their limited edition phones, they’re like pieces of art.”
Man City kick the 2023/24 campaign off with a trip to Burnley tonight.
It will see a reunion between the club and former captain Vincent Kompany, now the Clarets manager.
The treble winners have also been tipped with a move for West Ham’s Lucas Paqueta.
