Manchester United were also reportedly keen on signing the Monaco star, but the City have won the race for the 21-year-old.

“It feels great. To be honest I’m now at one of the best teams in the world. To be part of this club and to have this opportunity is great," Silva told the club's official website.

"I’m very happy to be part of Manchester City’s team and I look forward to trying to do my best to help the team reach their goals.

“If not the best coach in the world, he is one of the best.

"Of course when you have the opportunity of being trained by Guardiola, you don’t say no.

"As we all know, what he did in Barcelona and Bayern Munich was amazing and we expect also here that he will win titles. It’s great to be working with him and to have this opportunity.”
