David Silva signs for Manchester City

David Silva has agreed a move to Manchester City from Valencia, signing a four year deal that will no doubt fill his pockets with money for the foreseeable future, as well as giving his cash-strapped former club a nice goodbye gift – £30million. Silva certainly seems to be very happy at signing for the club, releasing a statement that explained how ‘thrilled’ he was to be moving to England.

‘Firstly I would like to thank Valencia as a club and all of their loyal fans, and my team-mates there and staff,’ said Silva, who came through the ranks at Valencia. ‘I have enjoyed six years at Valencia, they discovered me as a footballer and they will always be a special club for me.

‘The time is right for me to seek a new challenge, and I am thrilled about playing in England with Manchester City. I believe the Premier League is one of the best competitions in the world and I want to bring success to City and win trophies for them.

‘There has been a lot of speculation about me in the British and Spanish media, and I need to fully concentrate on playing for Spain in the World Cup. That is why my advisors have been dealing with City for me, so that I can have my attentions only on South Africa and playing well for my national team.’
