Man Metropolis's David Silva indicators one-year contract extension

Man City boss Pep Guardiola helped players get fundamentals right says Vincent Kompany

David Silva has signed a one-year contract extension at Manchester City, the Premier League leaders have announced.

The new deal had been in the pipeline for months, and Pep Guardiola had only talked in the past few days about the situation, but Silva finally committed to another year at the Etihad, as confirmed by the club's official website.

Silva joined City from Valencia for £24million in 2010 and has become one of the club's most popular players.

The two City stars were influential in City's 13th consecutive Premier League victory in the 2-1 triumph over West Ham, which saw De Bruyne assist Silva's 83rd minute victor to help open up an eight point advantage at the top of the Premier League.

Carragher believes we are looking at the best player to have donned the City colours.

The likes of Sergio Agüero, who is now their all-time top goalscorer, Yaya Touré and Vincent Kompany have all played to an extremely high level for City, but Jamie Carragher believes there is one who is a level above them and another who could surpass them all.


With age on his side, Carragher believes De Bruyne could even exceed David Silva in the ranks of City's best ever players.

"He's the best creative midfielder we've seen in this league", Henry said.

Sporting a newly shaven head this season, he has formed a devastating midfield partnership with Kevin De Bruyne, scoring one goal and providing 10 assists in all competitions. "I didn't see everyone play, but David Silva wants the ball and plays the same way against every team". He's courageous off the ball and on the ball.

'Now I mentioned City's greatest ever players, all the City fans may say Colin Bell, I don't know but in David Silva, he is the greatest City one.

"We're seeing two City greats here".
