Next season at Man City will be last one - Silva

It has always been reported that the Spaniard is thinking of leaving the Etihad Stadium and it's now clear that Silva wants to bow out after exactly 10 years at the club.

When we talk about great Premier League players, the Spaniard is rather often overlooked in the debate.

"This is the last one". This way every Silva touch next season will be cherished by his adoring fans and he will get the send off he truly deserves.

It was during a time of massive change for the Manchester club, which had not always been taken over by a new billionaire owner. He can't see himself "playing in another side against City".

By the end of his first season, City had won their first major trophy in 35 years, the 2011 FA Cup, and since then, they have gone on to lift four league titles, four League Cups and another FA Cup with Silva at the heart of it all.

83 - assists in the Premier League, seventh in the all-time list.

And among the children ages 1 to 4 who die of unintentional injuries, drowning accounts for one-third of the deaths. A heroic dad was caught on camera doing a Superman-style jump over a fence and into a pool to save his son.

195 - Silva has won 195 of the 282 Premier League matches he has been involved in, putting him on track to break John Terry's record for reaching 200 wins in the competition faster than any other player.

In an age of football where injuries are commonplace, Silva has managed to stay consistently fit.

Silva would like to go back home.

Silva played over 100 games for Valencia before moving to Manchester, and the early betting suggests he could be open to an emotional return to the Mestalla next summer. Little did they know that a decade later he would have won nearly everything and become their greatest ever player.

You'd be hard pushed to find anyone who dislikes David Silva. That was despite boss Pep Guardiola stating that he may play slightly less football in the 2018/19 campaign.

What do you think about the news that he's leaving? Not bad going, David! What's been your favourite David Silva moment?
