City's hierarchy is confident that Pep Guardiola and key players such as De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling will remain at Etihad Stadium, even if their profession is unsuccessful.
But according to the Belgian newspaper HLN the 28-year-old Belgium internationally could suffer a significant financial blow if City were to be banned from the European elite competition for the next two seasons.
According to football leaks, De Bruyne earns £ 1.25 million and £ 1.5 million a year from City & # 39; s qualification for the Champions League, which is a bonus on top of his basic wage.
If the Premier League champions of last season claim Europe & # 39; s top prize this season in Istanbul, the Belgian would also put £ 1 million in his pocket.
If City & # 39; s European ban on violating Financial Fair Play rules is strengthened by UEFA between 2012 and 2016, De Bruyne may miss out on at least 10% of its guaranteed wages, including loyalty costs and image rights .
The appeal of the club will be heard by the Court of Arbitration for Sport and rival clubs want this process to be speeded up to provide clarity.
Raheem Sterling has become the first City star to publicly commit his future to the club. Real Madrid is already associated with a mega-money move to England this summer. Sterling, however, does not want the uncertainty about the European future of City to affect its business end of the season.
Aidy Ward, who represents Sterling since the player was in school, told Sportsmail: & Raheem is focused solely on Manchester City and will not be distracted by any transfer at this time. & # 39;
Guardiola is supposed to be ready to honor his deal until the end of next year, despite the fact that there is a pause clause in his contract at the end of this season.

Pele has often been in the hospital for kidney and prostate problems in recent years.
What a difference can make a year. It is 12 months since Liverpool's defensive problems hit their lows during a 4-1 humiliation at Tottenham.
Jurgen Klopp was all over the place at Wembley that afternoon At that moment Liverpool had given 16 goals in their first nine Premier League At that time Liverpool had 16 goals conceded in their first nine matches – their worst defensive record at that stage of a season since 1964-65.
Compare that until now.
Compare that so far.
Klopp has observed a real historical transformation in their defensive versions, and in the late nineteenth century,
Finding the solution to Liverpool's leaky backline was not something that was self-evident to Klopp , a manager who was always proud of his
But due to a shift in focus and a bit smart, as expensive, investment, the German seems to be the biggest barrier between Liverpool and some elongated While Klopp admitted before the Huddersfield game that his intense focus on defining defensive errors had a detrimental effect on the attacking game of Liverpool, it was a dilemma that he had to th
A smoky Jurgen Klopp on the sidelines when his team placed an awful display in the 4-1 defeat than leaders Manchester City, the same number as Bournemouth and another stuttering Manchester United.
However, their now very hard defense foundation ensured that they ended up at 23 points with City at the top of the standings
Liverpool was in former times proud of its impenetrable defense – Bob Paisley's champion winning team of 1978 -79 left only 16 goals
And although Kloppen arrogant football brand is a crowd puller, those Liverpool fans who remember the glory days of the seventies and eighties know that it is not necessarily the best way to trop winning
That degrading defeat of Tottenham a year ago – one of the five times in the first half of the season that they had conceded three or more goals – convinced Klopp to break the bank for Virgil van Dijk .

They finally for their husband for £ 75 million in January – a world record for a defender – but Van Dijk was worth every penny and brought peace and command to the defense.
His impact was almost immediate and helped Liverpool reach the Champions League final within four months of his arrival at Merseyside.
But to simply say that all credits on Van Dijk would be wrong.
In spite of his tender years, Gomez has shown immense maturity and quickly removed any fear that Klopp may have had
Similarly, the rise of Trent Alexander-Arnold is on the right wing. The teenager took his chance after injuries to Nathaniel Clyne and has been consistently excellent in both defensive and offensive characteristics.

Alexander-Arnold is the epitome of modern full-back – fast, athletic and with refined c
While Alexander-Arnold, who grew up a short walk from the Melwood training base in Liverpool, was an added bonus, Andrew Robertson provided a very effective signing with left back.
Like his counterpart on the right flank, the Scot is adept at coming forward and delivering crosses, but tactically astute enough to also fulfill his defensive duties.
Behind those four, Mignolet and the equally big blunder -rone Loris Karius was thrown overboard to make way for the Brazilian Alisson, who arrived from Rome in the summer.
Although he is of course not cheap at £ 67 million, he has provided a missing piece of Klopp & # 39; s jigsaw puzzle that provides presence and certainty to
It seems that Klopp finally the Liverpool defense has sorted, and the 38 league matches – equivalent to a full Premier League campaign – they have been playing since that T The ottham's debacle carries that out.
£ 19 mln goalkeeper Alisson has been another big factor in Liverpool's defensive sobriety
Out of 44 goals to admit in the 38 games prior to and including that match against an average of 1.16 for 90 minutes, Liverpool only admitted 25 with an average of 0.66.
The number of errors leading to targets has dropped from eight to three – although Klopp certainly claims that it is three too much – 14 to 20.
But the important thing is that Liverpool's competitive victory rate has risen from 53 percent to 66 percent.
And that is the main reason why Klopp's laughter in Hollywood has been proven more than ever
