David Silva signs new five-year Manchester City deal

Published Add your comment

David Silva has extended his stay at The Etihad by another five years, BBC Sport report.

The Spaniard scored eight goals last term, earning his contract as Manchester City won the Premier League and the Capital One cup.

Back in 2010, City paid £24 million for the flamboyant attacking midfielder and he has impressed ever since.

A big part of Manuel Pellegrini’s plan  having featured 40 times for City last season, Silva is obviously settled and wants to stay to see the Citizens become one of the world’s most successful clubs.

Silva ambition

“Over the last four years, we have achieved so much together, establishing City as a dominating force in England and now, when I look around this dressing room, I can see no reason why we won’t become one of the top teams in the world," he told the club's official website.

The Spaniard put in some crucial performances towards the back end of the 2013-14 season, including the Capital One Cup final victory and the 3-0 Manchester derby win. He also scored in an important 2-0 away win against Hull, when City were reduced to 10 men for a large portion of the match.

Silva has been a big part of Manchester City’s money-filled rise to glory, and there are clearly no plans for the club to decrease the intensity of their pursuit for continental glory.

Their performance must be improved, however, after their 3-0 defeat by Arsenal in the Community Shield on Sunday.

The result made Silva’s side look unimpressive as they struggled to reach second gear. Arsene Wenger’s men ran rings around them for 90 minutes.

A team such as Manchester City will have to perform in big matches like that if they want to win more trophies. Silva has become a ‘big-game’ player but even he struggled to make his mark at Wembley.

City will hope to make amends away at Newcastle in their first Premier League fixture as they start their bid to retain the title they truly deserved last year.
