According to a recent report by the Sun, Manchester City midfielder David Silva is considering making a move away from the Etihad Stadium later this summer after he received a two-year, £12m deal from a club in Qatar. A source close to the Sun has also stated, “It would be a real shock if David does leave but he has had a great offer and is thinking it over hard. At the moment he’s more likely to go than stay.”
Silva’s future at Manchester is even under more doubt after he declared his desire to play for Las Palmas earlier this month when he told Onda Cero (via the Metro), ‘I’ve got a year left here.
‘I’ve always said that I’ve wanted to play for Las Palmas but when next season finishes I’ll see.
‘I’ll consider what I have left to give, what I want to do and what will be best.’
Silva’s Remarkable Career At Man City
The 33-year-old has enjoyed another fantastic campaign with the Citizens having led them to a second consecutive Premier League title. There is no doubt that Silva will go down in history as a Manchester City legend following his numerous match-winning contributions for them over the past decade.
Since his arrival from Valencia in the summer of 2010, the Spaniard has gone on to make a total of 396 appearances, scoring 71 goals while creating 129 assists across all competitions.
The 33-year-old has also registered 37 goals in 129 matches for Spain while helping his nation win their first and only FIFA World Cup back in 2010. He was also a part of the famous Spanish squads that won two consecutive European Championships in 2008 and 2012 respectively.
Why The Citizens Cannot Allow Him To Leave This Summer
Silva is amongst the best playmakers in world football. He still has a year left to run in his contract at the Etihad so the Citizens might be obligated to sell him now or risk losing him for free next summer. Either way, it seems like Man City won’t benefit from letting him depart as he is an integral part of Pep Guardiola’s squad.
At 33, the Spanish playmaker still has a few good years left in his tank even though he is not the same goal-threat anymore. Silva brings his experience and calmness to the Man City midfield and knows what it takes to win matches when the going gets tough.
Thus, the Premier League champions should do everything in their power to keep hold of him for at least another season. Even if the Spaniard fails to perform for Man City next season, he can still be an influential member of their dressing room.
