David Silva wants to hang up his boots at Manchester City

Spain international David Silva is hopeful of retiring from the beautiful game while playing at the highest level in England.

Silva has been with the Citizens since the summer of 2010, lifting two Premier League titles, one FA Cup and two EFL Cups in the process. The former Valencia man currently has two years left on his existing deal, but he is looking to extend his stay further in order to ideally retire at the club.

He told The Mail: "I'm very happy to be at City and I would like to continue there for as long as possible. It obviously depends on my health, my quality on the pitch and if the club want me to stay. I would like to be there until the end but the Premier League is such a hard league to play in."

Silva could not quite weave his magic in the Citizens shirt last season, but he is confident that the likes of Bernardo Silva and Ederson Moraes will help the club turn things around next term, he added:"Since I was a regular in the team, this hasn't been the best year because we haven't won any trophies but we're sure that next year it's going to be better.”

The Citizens went on a similar spending spree last summer, but could not challenge for the Premier League title, but Silva feels Pep Guardiola is doing a good job in forming up a team which can compete for League and Champions League honours next term.

The Catalan tactician went trophyless for the first time in his managerial career, but Silva feels that Pep has all the qualities to become successful with the Citizens. Manchester City have made bright starts to their league campaign, only to fall short during the festive period, and they will seek to rectify this issue by spending further on recruits who could add more spark on the playing field.
