Silva's Long-Term City Future Secured
City have today confirmed the signing of a contract extension for David Silva.
A new five-year deal will, in effect, see the Spanish international all-but end his career ay the Etihad - assuming he sees this out - as by the time it expires he will be 33-years-old, and that is of course assuming another extension is not agreed?
On and off the pitch Silva says that he feels 'incredibly content' with the things that he has achieved with the club more than pleasing for him and signing a new contract to spent his 'peak years' with us was an easy decision.
He told the official website: 'From the moment I joined the club four years ago it has felt like a second home to me.
'On and off the pitch, I feel incredibly content and fulfilled professionally and personally, so why wouldn't I want to stay and keep winning trophies with this fantastic team?
'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.
'It was a straightforward decision to extend my stay here and spend my peak years at Manchester City, a club with unbelievable fans who have always supported me.'
I don't think there will be too many that aren't happy with the news that Silva's been tied down until 2019?
City is easily the right place for him to be, added security for both sides will only see the Spaniard continue to thrive in my book!
