Silva set for new deal?
Out of all of City’s big name signings over the last few years, few people will disagree that David Silva has been one of the most promising. The Spanish winger has been an ever present fixture in Roberto Mancini’s starting eleven and following such brilliant form, he has been linked with moves across the continent. Fortunately for City fans, it appears as though Silva is more than happy to say, with sources claiming that the former Valencia man is even interested in extending his current contract.
After arriving for a whopping £26m back in 2010, there was certainly pressure on Silva to live up to his huge price tag. However, the 26-year-old has definitely managed to do that, becoming a fans favourite at the Etihad Stadium following a series of highly impressive attacking performances. His form has supposedly alerted Real Madrid, who have even been supposedly contemplating a £50m switch for the winger.
However, City supporters can certainly rest easier following vibes from the Silva camp. Firstly, his agent Julio Llorente said that his client is more than happy to stay with the Premier League champions, “David has a long contract with Manchester City, and he’s really valued there. I don’t know what could happen in the future, but Silva wants to stay there.”
The above was then followed by words from Silva himself, who told his official website that he feels completely at home in Manchester and is thoroughly enjoying his time at City, “I feel very comfortable here from when I arrived and nowadays I have just felt like a complete ‘Citizen’ man. I hope next season we will get more cups and also make a nice Euro Cup with my national team!”
Considering the fact that City now have financial clout and trophies to their name, it would appear very bizarre for them to lose any of their key men this summer.
