David Silva hasn’t ruled out staying at Manchester City beyond his current deal, but admits it will depend on how he feels in a couple of years.
El Mago is out of contract in the summer of 2020 and has recently suggested that he will be on his way out of the Etihad Stadium, perhaps for one last hurrah with Las Palmas back home in Spain.
Silva said in June: “When I finish my contract with Manchester City I will be 34 years old, at that time I will probably want to do something different.”
But new comments made to the press are a little different and he says whether he stays in Manchester longer depends on how he feels.
“I have two more years on my contract here. I feel great here. I want to stay until the end of my contract and then I’ll see how I feel physically and mentally to carry on,” the Spanish legend said.
Silva made his 250th Premier League appearance for the Blues in their 6-1 thrashing of Huddersfield last weekend, with his baby boy Mateo in attendance after overcoming his health problems, and Silva said it was a very special moment for him.
“It’s my ninth season here, I have played lots of games, enjoyed lots of great moments too. At the end, this is like a family to me.
“It was very special. Besides the milestone of it being my 250th game and the goal I scored, having my son there healthy at the Etihad Stadium is something that I will always remember.”
