David Silva is now very sure of his future. He said he will leave Manchester City at the end of next season when his contract expires. Silva is one of Man City’s most valued players. He won four Premier League titles, two FA Cups and four League Cups since he joined the club in 2010.
He scored his 71st goal in 396 appearances so far for the English champions in the FA Cup final last month as City completed a first-ever domestic treble in English football. The 33-year-old Man City star says he would move after completing his contract.
“This is the last one. Ten years for me is enough. It’s the perfect time for me. Initially, City was talking for about two years, but I decided to sign another one, so I finished at 10 years. It completes the cycle. It’s a nice round figure. I can never see myself playing against City for another team. So 10 years – that’s it.” Silva told reporters in his native Gran Canaria.
Silva missed chunks of City’s title-winning 2017/18 season to return to Spain where his pre-mature born son Mateo was being treated in hospital.
Mateo has since recovered and was in attendance for City’s first home game of this season in August when he scored in a 6-1 rout of Huddersfield.
However, Silva has previously talked of heading back to Spain for family reasons when his City elapse.
