The Spanish midfielder looks set to play his last season at the Etihad after nine years with the Manchester club.
“El Mago” could be moving back to his home country, with many predicting a move to his hometown club Las Palmas.
Ever since the club from Manchester was taken over by Sheikh Mansour, City have made immense progress when it comes to trophy success with the club managing to secure four Premier League titles, two FA Cups as well as four League Cups.

One of the main contributors to this success was for sure Spanish midfielder David Silva.
However, it seems that his time in England is set to be over after next season with the club, with Daily Mail reporting the midfielder could decide to move back to Las Palmas.
The 33-year old had joined City back in 2010 in a £25 million from La Liga side Valencia and has been vital to the club under all three different managers during his time, Roberto Mancini, Manuel Pellegrini as well as Pep Guardiola.
He managed to collect 400 appearances for City across all competitions, scoring 70 goals in the process.
The World Cup winner has just one year left on his deal at City currently and today’s news means he’s expected to move to Las Palmas next summer.
David Silva WILL NOT leave Manchester City this summer, despite interest from Japanese side Vissel Kobe.

Speaking recently he revealed his dream of playing for his hometown club, saying, “I’ve always said that I’ve wanted to play for Las Palmas but when next season finishes I’ll see. I’ll consider what I have left to give, what I want to do and what will be best.”
At 33 and with Bernardo Silva now a major part of the team it might have been expected that the elder Silva would have played less last season but Kevin de Bruyne’s injury potentially helped him start 28 league games.
He ended the Premier League-winning campaign with six goals and eight assists as City completed an unprecedented domestic treble.
