David Silva has undoubtedly been one of the best performers for Manchester City this season and he is set to be rewarded with a pay raise. It has been recently revealed that David Silva will be one of the squad members set to receive the new contract that will see his pay increase from £ 150,000 per week to £ 200,000 per week.
It would also put him alongside the likes of Sergio Aguero and Yaya Touré, while the other higher earner Carlos Tevez looks set to leave the club. David Silva has shown a number of other players at Manchester City. In fact, he has been largely responsible for the impressive start Manchester City have made to the season.
He is currently out with a small niggling injury, but is expected to return to first-team action soon. Roberto Mancini will be hoping for even better things from the Spaniard, who cost just £ 23 million from Valencia in 2010. He is now proving to be an incredible value for money, as he has assisted a number of Premier League goals for Manchester city. So far, he has provided 10 assists, a figure that is comparable only by his fellow Spaniard Mata at Chelsea.
“City believed in me and I’m very well here. Real Madrid and Barcelona are definitely two great clubs but I hope to stay in Manchester for many years,” David Silva said when asked about his choice of Manchester city over Real Madrid and Barcelona. Both these Spanish clubs were interested in the former Valencia winger, but it was ultimately the English club who landed him. Despite being only 26 years old, is already proving to be one of the best players for Manchester City in the years to come. The current contract will be extended by two years.
