Silva will stand by City

David Silva wants to repay the faith shown in him by Roberto Mancini, and insists he would ignore any approaches from Barcelona or Real Madrid in favour of staying at Manchester City.

The 25-year-old Spanish playmaker moved to the Etihad Stadium from Valencia in a £26million deal last summer, and having taken time to settle in the Barclays Premier League - Silva has now started to show what he is capable of.

His fine early season form has suggested that La Liga's two biggest clubs Real and Barcelona have been alerted to his potential and may make a move to sign him.

And whilst a return to his homeland would be viewed as a tempting proposition for Silva - who is looking to boost his international prospects, he has ruled out the possibility of a move.

"City believed in me and I'm very well here," he told The Sun. "Real Madrid and Barcelona are definitely two great clubs, but I hope to stay in Manchester for many years."

Silva has been the star of City's charge to the top of the Barclays Premier League table and was instrumental in dismantling neighbours Manchester United in last weekend's famous 6-1 derby victory at Old Trafford.

His commitment to the Citizens' cause will be a welcome boost to the players and fans alike, who will all be hoping to see Silva continue to dazzle in their colours for the forseeable future.
