Kevin De Bruyne has said Vincent Kompany helped persuade him to join Manchester City, and has set his sights on winning silverware after completing his club record move to the Etihad Stadium.
De Bruyne finally signed for City on Sunday in a £54 million deal, replacing Raheem Sterling as the most expensive signing in their history.
The 24-year-old Belgium international helped Wolfsburg win the DFB-Pokal last season and is looking forward to securing more trophies with the Premier League leaders.
Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini joked he feels good "for a dead man walking" following his side's excellent start to the season.
City have hit the ground running this term after winning all four of their opening games, scoring 10 goals in the process, while they have still yet to concede.
That contrasts with their record last season when they finished eight points behind champions Chelsea, leading to speculation that Pellegrini was set to be given the axe.
