Manchester City and Spain midfielder, David Silva, has today committed his future to the club by signing a contract extension that will see him stay at the club untill the summer of 2017.
The Spaniard has already over 70 caps for the English champions since joining from Spanish side Valencia back in 2010.
Silva and Mancini are expected to hold a press conference before the Real Madrid clash to talk about the new deal, but David Silva has already showed his delight at extending his time at Manchester City.
“I’m very pleased because I’ve been here for two years now and I feel very happy here at the club, in the city and with all the people. So now I’m delighted to be extending my contract and being here really does feel just like home for me,” he beamed.
“We’ve won the Premier League title and two other trophies too, and the team is growing and we are now aiming at the Champions League and so that also is another reason to want to stay here and try and win it. As I said, I feel very comfortable here and I want to try and win trophies like those.
“These last two years have gone very well and so let’s hope that the next five go as well or even better. The fans have always given me their support since I arrived here, and recently they‘ve been wanting me to sign, so hopefully this goes someway to thanking them for the affection they’ve shown towards me, something which also helped me decide to put pen to paper.”
Manchester City will now prepare themselves for their big Champions League clash against Real Madrid.
