David Silva Signs New 5-Year Deal At City

Manchester City midfielder, David Silva, has signed a new five-year contract with the Premier League champions as announced by the club on Tuesday.

Silva, who joined City from Valencia for around £23 million, has put pen to paper on a new contract which will see him remain at City until at least 2019.

“From the moment I joined the club four years ago it has felt like a second home to me,” he told the club’s official website.

“On and off the pitch, I feel incredibly content and fulfilled professionally and personally, so why wouldn’t I want to stay and keep winning trophies with this fantastic team.

The 28-year-old believes Manchester City have become a dominating force in England and insists the Citizens are eyeing to become a top side in the world.

“Over the last four years, we have achieved so much together, establishing City as a dominating force in England and now, when I look around this dressing room, I can see no reason why we won’t become one of the top teams in the world,” he added.

“It was a straightforward decision to extend my stay here and spend my peak years at Manchester City, a club with unbelievable fans who have always supported me.

Silva won the 2011 FA Cup, two Premier League titles and the 2014 League Cup with the Citizens and becomes the third player, after Aleksandar Kolarov and Samir Nasri, to extend his contract in recent weeks.
