Manchester City Captain David Silva is reportedly ready to sign a short-term contract extension to Etihad, so that he is able to continue playing for the club whenever the rest of the season is played out.
Even if the Premier League season is given the green light to play in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the 2019-20 campaign will not resume until the 12th of June at the earliest. However, the veteran midfielder is set to leave Manchester when his new contract expires on June 30.
He will thus need an extension on the loan to stay with Manchester City.
The report argues that Silva is able to live on the Etihad because he’s still holding out for the Champions League’s glory, with Pep Guardiola already 2-1 ahead of Real Madrid in the last 16.
According to ESPN, the City is also eager to keep Silva in the books until the end of the season. After all, Silva has played 10 years with the people, during which time he has scored 73 goals from 423 appearances. He has also scored three goals and seven assists from 19 Premier League appearances in this term alone.
