The Portuguese international’s new deal will keep him at the Etihad Stadium until at least 2025, and is reward for his exceptional performances this season which have led to huge praise from boss Pep Guardiola.
Who has been the best player in the EPL so far this season? The Pl>ymaker FC squad have their say in the video below…
Silva, formerly of Monaco, has recorded nine goals and set up seven more in the current campaign, emerging as one of the Citizens’ most important players in a team full of world-class talent.
The 24-year-old has already won a Premier League title and two Carabao Cups with the current league leaders, and will most likely add some more silverware to his collection come the end of the season.
Let’s see what the City fans on Twitter are saying about the confirmation of Silva’s new deal, a player who has quickly become a fan favourite at the club…
Best news of the week. Fantastic player and will be the lifeblood of our team in years to come. Become a real crowd favourite with his non stop running and that permanent smile on his face
