Silva focused on City success

Football first and business second seems to be David Silva's system of belief.

The Spanish international left Valencia to join Manchester City in 2010 by signing a four year contract.

Although he still has two years to run on his existing deal, City are keen on renewing Silva's contract after witnessing the qualities he brings on the pitch.

The talented playmaker is aware of City's wish having established himself as one of the fans' favourites, but is in no rush to open negotiations, and would rather focus on bringing something special to the Citizens this season.

"I am not thinking about the prospect of a new deal this summer," he said.

What occupies Silva's mind is the weekend's fixture against Newcastle United. After beating local rivals Manchester United 1-0 on Monday, Roberto Mancini's men returned to the top of the Premier League table, but need to make sure that they don't drop any points, if they want to be crowned champions.

"What I'm thinking about is the next match on Sunday (against Newcastle), he told reporters. "I have two years left on my contract and I have always said I will be happy to stay here."

Although the 26-year-old has been in top form, he confessed that an ankle problem has been restricting him throughout the second half of the season.

"I had constant knocks on the same ankle that has caused me a lot of trouble in the past. I'm having a lot of treatment to get movement in my ankle. It is feeling slightly better, but it helps that the team are playing better."
