Manchester City First Team Ace Set To Join MLS Next Summer: Time For Guardiola To Let Him Go?

According to a recent report by the Independent, Manchester City midfielder David Silva is set to join Inter Miami, a team owned by David Beckham, at the end of this campaign. The same source has claimed that the Spanish playmaker will become the new face of the Major League Soccer outfit next summer.

It is believed that his track record for the Spanish national side is a factor that resonates with the Hispanic community present in the city of Miami (via the Independent). The 33-year-old has nearly spent a decade of his playing career at the Etihad Stadium since joining from Valencia in the summer transfer period of 2010.

David Silva’s Inspirational Career In English Football

Silva has gone on to make 402 appearances for the Citizens, scoring 71 goals while creating 134 assists across all competitions. He has won the Premier League title four times and the FA Cup twice during his time at Manchester. However, he is yet to get his hands on the UEFA Champions League trophy with Man City. Thus, this season could be his last chance to do so before his big move to the United States next summer.

The Arguineguin-born midfield ace has also secured 129 international caps for Spain and has registered 37 goals for his country in the process. At 33, Silva is currently playing in the twilight years of his playing career. Therefore, a potential switch to MLS could be a welcome opportunity for him to make a lucrative end to his playing career.

What Does The Spanish Veteran Offer On The Pitch?

Silva has lost a yard of pace from his game over the past few years, but he can still be a driving force from midfield. The Spaniard is still considered as one of the most creative midfielders in European football as he can pick out a decisive pass in the final third without breaking too much sweat.

Furthermore, he has an incredible vision which allows him to create some excellent goal-scoring chances going forward. The 33-year-old can also score the odd goal to help his team in the opposition half.

Time For Man City To Part Ways With One Of Their Legends?

Silva has been a loyal servant for Man City so they owe the player a lot and should abide by his wishes if he chooses to leave the club at the end of this campaign. However, Pep Guardiola needs to find a suitable replacement for the Spanish legend next summer. It won’t be an easy task by any means, considering how special Silva has been for the Citizens over the past decade.
