Manchester City are marching their way to the Premier League title having won all their matches but one so far this season. In their last match against Stoke City, the Citizens decimated the Potters with an outstanding cohesive effort, scoring seven goals without much fuss.
The dominating display saw all the players contribute with their individual efforts, making it a pretty forgettable day for Stoke City in the Premier League. They outdid the Potters in every department, making it a cakewalk for them to grab three more points and affirm their spot at the top of the table.
Since the start of the season, Pep Guardiola has befuddled all his critics by marshalling his troops in the right way and his main minion has been the captain of his side, David Silva.
The wily Spaniard has held the midfield together with his brilliant ball playing ability and his ball distribution has been perfect, setting his teammates to score goals. He is also in goal-scoring nick for his side and has led them to glory in both domestic as well as European competitions.
To reward his commitment towards the Manchester club, Guardiola wants to tie him down with a new contract at the Etihad. He is well aware of the fact that Silva is one of City’s most important players and is a very important element in the present team composition. Guardiola will need him badly if he is to win silverware with the Citizens in the near future.
However, the fact that the player is already 31 years old might be a factor that might not go in favour of the Spaniard in receiving a renewed contract but his guile and experience at the top level might make the ball fall in his favour. A veteran of more than 300 matches, David Silva has seldom been out of form and has been the secret weapon for the Citizens to rescue them from the most adverse of situations.
The Spanish midfielder signed a new five-year deal in 2014 after he came into the side in 2010 from the La Liga club Valencia. Though the Citizens have brought in Bernardo Silva during the summer transfer window, who is a similar sort of player, it might be a good decision to keep their man in form at their disposal with a new contract.
