David Silva Compilation Shows He Easy He Has Made Football Look In Ten Years

David Silva Compilation Shows He Easy He Has Made Football Look In Ten Years

10 years ago today, Manchester City snapped up David Silva from Valencia for a fee of £24 million in a transfer that would bring great enjoyment for anyone who watches Premier League football.

Despite an initially slow start as he took time to adapt to life in England, the pint-sized Spaniard has since cemented his place as City's greatest ever player and one of the best ever to kick a ball in English football.

Silva has played a starring role in four Premier League title triumphs with City - even doing so with three different hairstyles - as well as lifting two FA Cups and five League Cups in sky blue.

In 428 games as a City player, the 34-year old has scored 75 goals and assisted teammates on 137 occasions.

He's already been voted as the best Spanish player ever to play in the English top flight and the below compilation just shows what a joy to watch Silva has been in his decade playing on these shores.

The sublime control, the effortless technique, the wand of a left-foot, the vision and awareness to pull off a pass nobody even thought was possible - Silva has been and utter revelation and it's been a pleasure to watch him strut his stuff.

A consummate professional and a player who has maintained a frightening level of consistency over the years, City captain Silva will not be extending his contract this summer.

And with the rest of the season being played out behind-closed-doors, the club's fans may well have seen him play for the last time.

Pep Guardiola has promised the World Cup winner a send-off when it is safe to do so and it is only right that Silva and the City supporters get to say goodbye to one another given what he means to them

Should he manage to get his hands on the Champions League if City manage to go all the way, he will have accomplished all he set out to do in England.

But Silva, who looks set to move to Qatari outfit Al-Duhail SC, is already prepared for the next chapter of his career.

"When I say one thing, I move forward. I am sorry, I have been here ten years and I have fulfilled what I wanted," Silva told AS in May.

"The cycle closes here, but I will always keep this club in mind for everything I have lived. From the first moment people have treated me incredible. Here they have a great respect for you, people give admiration towards you. Now my family and I need another challenge.
