TRANSFER TARGET

The Manchester City midfielder David Silva has once again emerged as a major transfer target for Real Madrid in the summer, as they look to close the gap on the leaders Barcelona.

Silva came extremely close to joining Real Madrid in the last summer transfer window only for the player to sign a new contract with the Premier league champions. Silver signed a new five year contract with Manchester City in the summer that would make him one of the best paid players at the club. Despite this, the interest from the Spanish club has not waned yet especially after a poor season in the league.

SILVA SCORES TWO

The former Valencia star David Silva recently helped his current team Manchester City record a 2-0 victory over Fulham by scoring both goals. After the match, the assistant manager David Platt praised his performance by saying that it was just reward for his performances this season.

MORE PATIENCE NEEDED

The Manchester City midfielder David Silva has said that the team needs to be more patient in order to be successful in European competitions in the future.

SILVA DENIES RUMOURS

The midfielder of Manchester City, David Silva, has denied the reports that his new contract with City has a clause according to which if he wants to leave City for joining any Spanish club before the completion of his contract, he can do that. Silva’s contract with City has been extended for the next four years a few weeks back.

BARRY LOVES PLAYING WITH SILVA

Manchester city midfielder Gareth Barry has said that he is extremely delighted to play alongside a player like David Silva. The Spanish midfielder arrived from Valencia in the £ 26 million deal a few seasons ago.

He was initially expected to struggle in the Premier league due to the physical nature of the league in general, but he has been one of the best players in the last few seasons for both Manchester city and indeed amongst the Premier league players. He is said to be rewarded for his excellent performances with a new contract.

CITY WILL MISS DUO

Manchester city assistant manager David Platt has said that he does not expect both David Silva and Mario Balotelli to be part of the squad in the opening few weeks of the season. The two players were heavily involved with the respective national teams and the Euro 2012.

David Silva managed to win the Euro 2012 with the Spanish national team, while Mario Balotelli was the player to lose the final with the Italian national team. As a result, they had absolutely no rest over the summer, which is the cause for the decision to extend the break for these two players according to David Platt.

STAYING AT CITY

David Silva has made it clear that he has no plans of leaving Manchester City at the moment. Silva is currently on holiday after winning Euro Cup 2012. There have been rumors that Silva might take transfer to Real Madrid this summer. But, Silva said that he is not going to join any other club. As per Silva, talks are going on between his agent and the authorities of Manchester City and his contract may be extended.

SILVA BACKS MANCINI

Manchester City midfielder David Silva has said that manager Roberto Mancini is the true champion of the club because he has protected his players from the pressure of winning the title this season.

Mancini has managed to go one step ahead of Sir Alex Ferguson by being the most effective when it comes to the mind games this season.

After Manchester United established an eight point lead at the top of the table, Mancini said that it was very difficult for Manchester city to win the title. He almost appeared to hand the title on a plate to United.

CONTRACT TALKS CONTINUE

Manchester City midfielder David Silva has said that he is not worried about the lack of contract talks between him and the club, which was scheduled to take place during the months of April and May.

David Silva has been one of the star performers for Manchester City this season, although his form has dipped alarmingly of late.

Many have attributed to his loss of form to the huge number of games he has been part of season, but the Spanish midfielder has conceded that it is quite normal for a player's form to dip over the course of a season.

SILVA NOT FULLY FIT

David Silva has been one of the best performers in the English Premier league this season, but this form has dipped in the last few weeks.

Now, the Manchester City midfielder has revealed that he has not been 100% in the last few weeks, as he has been playing through the pain barrier in order to help City win the title this season.
