David Silva: 'I will not renew my Manchester City contract'

David Silva

But now, in an interview with the BBC's Premier League Show, Silva has revealed that he's set a deadline for leaving his beloved City, and the club he wants to join next.

"Despite the fact that they [Manchester City] have got perhaps the most expensive squad, their turnover to wages ratio is just 52 per cent and sort of bang on where it should be", said Bick.

Since venturing over to England back in 2010, David Silva has not only cemented himself as a Manchester City legend, but transformed into one of the Premier League's all-time great foreign inputs.

City will hope to continue the good results on the pitch when they host Fulham on Saturday, while continuing to excel and grow off the pitch into a global footballing powerhouse.

The Chairman concludes his message, reflecting that "Our aim is obviously to build on the achievements of the previous year".
