Manchester City stalwart David Silva is said to have been talking to the former side of Valencia about a potential return to La Liga this summer.
With his deal coming to an end in June, the midfielder has confirmed that he will leave Etihad. So far, Silva has scored 73 goals in 423 appearances for the citizens since he arrived in 2010.
David Beckham’s MLS Inter Miami was advertised as a possible destination for Silva, while AC Milan and Juventus were also credited with interest. This information was challenged when ESPN revealed that the 34-year-old had been in touch with Valencia on his return to Mestalla, and the Spanish offered Silva a three-year contract.
The report also states that the move has been complicated due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, with concerns emerging from players whose contracts could expire before the end of the season. If the move back to Valencia does happen, it is speculated that Silva will either have to briefly prolong his deal with Pep Guardiola’s side or leave when his contract expires on 30 June, without having finished the season.
Current Spain International has scored three goals and seven assists in 19 Premier League appearances this term.
