Manchester City playmaker David Silva has shrugged off rumours linking him with a move to Real Madrid, insisting he is happy at the Etihad Stadium.

Real Madrid have been credited with an interest in Silva for some time but reports in Spain suggest they could be about to go one step further with a €60 million bid.

The former Valencia man is yet to find his best form this season but is considered a key part of Manchester City's squad and put pen to paper on a five year deal at the Etihad Stadium last month.

Despite Madrid's reported interest, Silva says he is more than happy to stay with Manchester City for the foreseeable future.

Speaking on radio station Cadena Cope, the Citizens star said when asked about the reports linking him with a move to Madrid: ‘I prefer not to say anything on the subject. I'm very happy in Manchester and I think this is similar to what happens every year.

There are always rumours and, in the end, the player has to be calm. I renewed my contract because I am happy in Manchester.’”

Manchester City currently sit in 5th in the Premier League, and go up against West Ham at Upton park when domestic action resumes after the international break. Silva is currently on duty with Spain as they prepare to face Belarus.
