Manchester City star David Silva says he hopes to sign a new deal at the club and extend his stay at the Etihad to over 10 years.
The Spaniard has been one of City’s best players since joining from Valencia, and manager Pep Guardiola has described him as a City legend in recent times. But the playmaker’s contract expires at the end of next erm, and there are question marks over whether or not he will extend or look to move elsewhere – with the competition for places being so strong.
But Silva himself says he wants to extend his stay at the club, and admits he is praying for glory in the Champions League – a competition City are among the favourites for.
“We are still talking. I hope I can sign soon because I would love to be here and play for City 10 years.
The 31-year-old has won it all at domestically at City, with five domestic trophies including two Premier League titles, but he is yet to win a European trophy with them and says he is praying every night to do so.
“It would be amazing (to win the Champions League). I pray every night to win the Champions League with City. Hopefully we can win this year.”
City have been rampant so far this season, and Silva admits the current team is the best he has played alongside.
“Yes, I think so. We are playing really good football, beautiful football. We are scoring so many goals and creating a lot of chances,” said Silva when asked if he is among the strongest City squad yet.
“I think we are doing very well in all the lines from the keeper to the striker. We know how to move every time.”
