Silva signs new Manchester City deal

Bernardo Silva will stay at Manchester City until at least 2026 after the Portugal midfielder signed a new contract with the Premier League and European champions, reports AFP. Silva had been linked with a transfer window move from the Etihad Stadium, with Spanish giants Barcelona long reported to be interested in the 29-year-old. But he has now ended any lingering speculation about his future by agreeing a new contract with last season’s treble-winners -- City also lifted the FA Cup -- after his previous contract was due to expire in 2025. “I’ve had six incredible years at
Manchester City and I’m delighted to extend my time here,” Silva told the club’s website. Silva joined City in 2017 and has scored 55 goals in 308 appearances while amassing an impressive haul of silverware for Pep Guardiola’s side that includes five Premier League titles, two FA Cups, four League Cups and the Champions League. Silva has missed City’s last two matches with a
minor injury but is expected to return for the league match away to Sheffield United on Saturday.
