David Silva: Manchester City midfielder signs a one-year contract extension

David Silva: Manchester City midfielder signs a one-year contract extension”

"I never thought I'd see someone pull on a City shirt who may actually be better than Silva, but if De Bruyne keeps playing the way he's playing this season for a four or five year period, he could surpass him".

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.

Pep Guardiola's men are eight points ahead of Manchester United in the title race, with the pair set to meet on Super Sunday next weekend.

The Spanish playmaker, whose previous deal expired at the end of next season, is now committed to the club until 2020.

'I am so happy to have committed my future to City, ' the 31-year-old told the.

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

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

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.

Speaking in the Sky Sports studio, former Arsenal striker Henry agreed with Carragher.

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

'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. He puts his foot in and doesn't shy away from the ball.

'He is fearless on the ball and also off the ball.

Thierry Henry and Jamie Carragher praised Manchester City for sticking to their style of play, even when under pressure.

With the scores locked at 1-1, the Belgium global curled a sumptuous ball from deep over the top of the West Ham backline where David Silva was waiting to gratefully volley home.

"De Bruyne's going to be another one, no doubt".
