David Silva has confirmed he will leave Manchester City after this season.
“This is the last one,” Silva told reporters. “Ten years for me is enough. It’s the perfect time.
“Initially the club were talking about two years [contract] but I decided to sign another one so I finished at 10 years.
“It completes the cycle. It’s a nice round figure. I can never see myself playing against City for another team. So 10 years – that’s it!”
“We haven’t been able to achieve that goal yet of winning the Champions League but if every year is like last season I would sign for it right now,” he added.
“When I was a kid, I never thought I would achieve everything I have done, so I’m more than happy with what I have achieved in my 10 years at City.
“The respect people have shown me and the way people in Manchester have treated me has been unbelievable. That’s what I really like, the recognition they have given me.
“I’ve got a family now and it’s about priorities. I want to spend more time with the family. I’ve got another year at Manchester City so we will see what happens after that.”
“Not China,” Silva said of his next destination. “I don’t know. My girlfriend decides for me!
“I would love to finish my career in Las Palmas but football changes. Who knows? It depends on the team and the players. I cannot come here [to Las Palmas] to play in the second division with this team.”
