Kompany will leave the Citizens when his contract expires at the end of June to become a player-manager at his former club, Anderlecht.

Now, David Silva has reportedly received a whopping contract offer from an unnamed Qatari club, according to The Sun.

"It would be a real shock if David does leave, but he has had a great offer and is thinking it over hard," an insider told the abovementioned British publication. 

"At the moment, he's more likely to go than stay."

The 33-year-old is understood to be mulling over a massive £12 million (R220 million) offer on a two-year deal.

Silva could pocket £6 million (R110 million) a season, effectively doubling his City wages as there are no taxes to paid in Qatar.

The Premier League champions would be prepared to let the Spaniard, who has just one year left on his current contract, leave and have reportedly already identified Youri Tielemans as his potential replacement.

The Belgium international impressed during his loan stint at Leicester City, who are desperate to sign him on a permanent deal.

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly also interested in the 22-year-old, with AS Monaco keen for a bidding war between the English sides to push up his price.

If he does decide to move on from the Citizens, Silva would be leaving after nine years at the Etihad Stadium, during which he has made 396 appearances, scoring 71 goals and assisting another 129 strikes.

The 2010 FIFA World Cup winner has lifted four Premier League titles, two FA Cups, four League Cups and one FA Community Shield since joining the Citizens in 2010.
