Manchester City’s talismanic Spaniard, David Silva, will be playing his last season for the club this upcoming campaign. The midfielder himself confirmed that he won’t be playing again with City after this next 2019-2020 season ends.
Silva believes that after finishing next season, it’s time for him to step away from Etihad. After completing the 2019-2020 season, the 33-year-old will celebrate his 10 years with City, which he thinks is more than enough time to spend.
The former Spanish international has no intention in playing for any other teams in Premier League. However, there’s not talk about retiring as a footballer as just yet.
Silva might consider returning to Spain sometime in the future, but he could also play outside of Europe. There’s certainly a chance for him to also retire fully from football, but it will be a shame as he can still play at least two-three more years.
The midfielder also revealed in his latest interview with BBC that City initially offering him to sign two more years. However, he opted to just take one more year so that he can complete that 10-year cycle at the club.
“Initially, City were talking about two years, but I decided to sign another one, so I finished at 10 years,” Silva stated. “Ten years for me is enough. It’s the perfect time for me. It completes the cycle.”
