Done deal | David Silva extends Manchester City contract

Manchester City confirm Spanish playmaker David Silva has signed a new deal until 2020, which would mark 10 years at the Etihad Stadium.

The 31-year-old joined from Valencia in 2010 and has gone on to make over 300 appearances in all competitions with the Sky Blues.

“I am so happy to have committed my future to City,” he said.

“I am incredibly proud of what I have achieved at City in my seven-and-a-half seasons here and with Pep in charge, I feel we are in a great position to win trophies this season and beyond.

 “The style of football we are playing is a pleasure to be a part of and I look forward to winning more titles in the years to come.”

Silva, who has made over 100 caps for Spain, is regarded as one of Manchester City’s best-ever players. He’s won three League Cups (2014, 2016, 2018), two Premier League titles (2011/12, 2013/14) and one FA Cup (2011).

A regular under Pep Guardiola, the midfielder has scored and created eight goals in 14 Premier League appearances this season, creating 31 chances. He’s formed a potent partnership alongside Kevin de Bruyne, one of the players of the season, with Fernandinho anchoring.

Despite his advancing age, Silva has shown little signs of decline and is thriving as a roaming playmaker. The Spaniard has played in 16 of City’s record-breaking 19 consecutive wins in all competitions this season, contributing 10 goals.

The Sky Blues are on course to win their third Premier League crown as they currently sit eight points clear of Manchester United at the summit and have a chance at winning the quadruple (Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup, League Cup).
