Manchester City forward David Silva says this will be his final season at the Etihad.

The 33-year-old will complete a decade with City when his contract expires the end of the season but he insists it’s time for a change.

“No, this is the last one,” he said at a press conference in Gran Canaria when asked about whether he would sign a new deal at the club.

“Ten years for me is enough. It’s the perfect time for me.

“Initially, City were talking about two years, but I decided to sign another one, so I finished at 10 years.

“It completes the cycle. It’s a nice round figure. I can never see myself playing against City for another team. So 10 years – that’s it.”

Silva played in 33 Premier League games scoring six goals as City won the Premier League title for a second season on the trot.

He has played a total of 395 games for the club winning four Premier League titles, two FA Cups and four League Cups following his move from Valencia in 2010.
