The former Genk midfielder signed a new six-year deal with City in January with a massive release clause, signalling the club's intent to retain their star man.
"He's a football genius", he admitted.
City are also hoping to tie England global Raheem Sterling, who joined City in the same summer as De Bruyne, to a new deal.
During Mateo's battle for life after arriving after 15 weeks prematurely last December, the Spaniard was frequently flying back and forth to Valencia, and reportedly revealed he was scared of losing his son. They have started the new season with three wins out of a possible three games and will look to continue their 100% record when they travel to Real Sociedad on Saturday afternoon.
"We never want to lose the game, but it wasn't an easy day for us", Jokanovic said after the game.
"Our aim is obviously to build on the achievements of the previous year. e will always strive for more".
"I'm relaxed at the moment, I train hard and when the manager gives me an opportunity I show him what I can do".
"In the past, some of my coaches had focused more on attack, others more on defence - but he covers the whole pitch". I expect we will be successful and spend less next season.
"You have to play good football for a whole year to achieve that, but I think they can do it, both Pep and Klopp".
"After that, I don't know".
"It depends on how I feel physically".
"They had called me since December asking me to play for them, I asked myself which team loved me and I came up with the conclusion that Manchester City loved me so I should go there".
"This year it's going to be very exciting", Gotze told Omnisport.
