To celebrate the team’s historic treble-winning season, Kevin De Bruyne gave his Manchester City team-mates personalised platinum iPhones.
The Belgian superstar distributed 26 specially-designed phones, each worth £5,000, ahead of the start of the new Premier League season.
De Bruyne unveiled the extravagant gifts, which were created by world-renowned bespoke mobile designers iDesign Gold, during a surprise event on Thursday.
The midfielder organised the gifts for all of the players, as well as Pep Guardiola and club owner Sheikh Mansour, to receive an iPhone 14 with their name and club logo etched on the case.

De Bruyne left the pitch injured during City’s Premier League opener against Burnley at Turf Moor after the Belgian made a surprise start having only played a total of 27 minutes during pre-season.
The Belgian seemed to suffer a flare up of his previous hamstring injury and was replaced by Mateo Kovacic.
