Manchester City has extended the contract of one of their most important players for at least one more year.

David Silva has signed a contract extension with Premier League leaders Manchester City until 2020. As a result, the 31-year-old would extend his tenure with the club up to 10 years if he plays until the end of the deal.

The Spanish playmaker did not hide his emotions when sealing the deal, as he said he was “happy to commit” his future to City, while at the same time admitted he was “incredibly proud” of what he has accomplished in the club. Silva joined City from Valencia in 2010 and has been one of the most successful players in the history of the club. The numbers and titles speak for themselves, as Silva has won two Premier League titles, two League Cups and one FA Cup with the club.

The Spain international has also been in excellent form this season and already has eight assists in the league, topping the Premier League on that statistic. He has emerged as a vital piece for Pep Guardiola in midfield, and there is no question he fully deserves his new deal.

There is no question Silva deserved the deal. He is one of the most important playmakers in the entire league, and City know he is an extremely vital piece for the first-team squad.
