David Silva Deal Sets Up Manchester City For New Season
The Spanish playmaker David Silva has signed a new five-year deal with the Premier League champions Manchester City.Silva joined City for £24 million in July 2010. Last season he scored eight goals in forty appearances as he help City win the title and the Capital One Cup.
He was also part of the team that won the Premier League in 2011-12 and also triumphed in the FA Cup in 2010-11.
Silva said that it was a straightforward decision to stay at the club, but it will still cause the team and fans alike to breathe a sigh of relief.
In a statement he said, “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, so why wouldn’t I stay and keep winning trophies with a fantastic team? Over the last four years, we have achieved so much together, establishing City as a dominating force in England.”
Three of City’s players have now signed new deals; the other two were winger Samir Nasri and defender Aleksandar Kolarov. The signings mean that Manager Manuel Pellegrini can now focus on helping the team achieve the same kind of results as last season.
