David Silva hails City move as the best decision of his career, but hints at exit

Manchester City midfielder David Silva has admitted that joining the Blues back in 2010 was the best decision of his career.

The Spaniard has made over 250 appearances for City, scoring 48 goals and registering a whopping 83 assists. He is potentially one of the greatest ever players to have donned the Sky Blue jersey, and has been a catalyst for all the success the club have achieved since he signed.

City have won seven major trophies in the eight years since Silva joined from Valencia, and the playmaker insists he is still hungry for more.

“I signed for Manchester City and it was the best decision of my footballing career,” Silva said in an ITV interview.

“Right now, I’m concentrating on this year and trying to improve on last season.”

Silva recently revealed his admiration for home side Las Parmas, hinting that he could be open to a future move by saying: “I would like to [play for Las Palmas], but in football what one wants doesn’t always happen and I only wish them the best, as I hope I can play with them one day.”

However, he told ITV that he will honour his contract at City first before making a decision.

“Would I like to finish my career at City? When it gets to 2020 I’ll think about it. In football, you can’t plan your future like that. It’s day by day.”
