Manchester City fans have taken to Twitter to react after The Sun revealed that the midfielder could be moving to Qatar, as a lucrative offer has reportedly been handed to him.
The Spaniard has reportedly been tempted by a two-year deal worth a whopping £12m tax-free, which he is said to be mulling over whilst City try to line up £40m-rated Youri Tielemans as his replacement.
Losing 6-0 was only told half the story for Watford fans in the FA Cup final. Check out the video below to find out why…
Silva, now 33, revealed last year that he has a desire to return to his homeland of Gran Canaria with Las Palmas so his son can experience the same upbringing he had; given the child’s premature birth last year, it wouldn’t seem likely that Silva would want to take his son to Qatar for two years as some fans have suggested below.
The Citizens have already said goodbye to one cult hero in Vincent Kompany this summer, and it would be heartbreaking for City supporters if they had to let another go at the same time.
Let’s see what the supporters of the Premier League champions have been saying on Twitter…
David Silva could have played last game for Manchester City after being tempted by a £12M tax-free offer from Qatar.
Manchester City are lining up £40M-rated Monaco midfielder Youri Tielemans, who impressed on loan at Leicester last season, as his replacement.

No ta. I’ll believe what the man himself said about seeing his contract out and wanting to play for Las Palmas.

This is just sad. Indeed, we are coming to an end of an era. Long live El Mago. Isco or nothing now. ???

So potentially we’ll lose Kompany, Silva and Sané all in one window pic.twitter.com/PODnNwVVRT

This was not the news I wanted to wake up to. Losing Vinny was bad enough, this would kill me. The club has to be very careful with how they handle the departures of what has been the spine of this side. That’s a lot of experience to lose in one go
