Signing a Manchester City contract extension was among the easiest decisions of Kevin de Bruyne’s burgeoning career. The brilliant Belgian has gone from strength to strength ever since signing for the Blues in 2015. And his ascent to being recognised as one of the Premier League’s finest talents, coupled with finding the perfect environment to shine at the Etihad, means he did not have to think for too long about extending his stay in Manchester by a further two years until 2023.
Manchester City have a new admirer in Chelsea forward Eden Hazard. The Blues have won plenty of plaudits for their attacking style and possession football as they have built their dominant position at the top of the Premier League. They are 12 points clear after their destruction of Newcastle on Saturday and Hazard - who has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge - believes the approach is one to emulate.
The six months in which Bernardo Silva has observed Kevin de Bruyne as a teammate have only seen his appreciation of the brilliant Belgian grow. Silva already knew City's chief creator was one of the best around after facing him for Monaco in the Champions League last season. And after witnessing him up close this season, the Portuguese believes he is better and is happy to talk about De Bruyne in the same terms as his international teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
