David Silva reveals why Man City transfer was the 'right move'

David Silva reveals why Man City transfer was the 'right move'

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola insists he's in the dark over new contract talks for Raheem Sterling.

De Bruyne signed a new contract in January that keeps him with Manchester City until 2023.

The worldwide break is over and it's back to the Etihad Stadium for Manchester City with a second consecutive league game at the home of the Premier League champions.

Asked if De Bruyne has a release clause, Guardiola said: "No I don't think so".

Guardiola denied saying De Bruyne has a release clause but said the club would not sell him - even for a fee that eclipsed Neymar's world record £198m switch from Barcelona to Paris St Germain.

The Englishman was crucial to City last season, scoring an impressive 18 goals in 33 appearances as the Citizens romped to the Premier League title with a record-breaking 100 points.

City beat Stoke 1-0 at Wembley, allowing Silva - also a World Cup and two-time European Championship victor - to lift the first of the seven major trophies he has won at the club. "We would like to continue", the Spaniard said. "His body language is the same as last season and he was the best young player in the league", Guardiola said.

"City wanted me", he says in an interview for the Premier League Show. "He knows absolutely everything, what happened here, the team, the way we play, or what happens with the club - he's involved".

"The other day, I met his parents and you often understand how the children are when you know the parents". I was really impressed.

Thanks Etisalat UAE, we've needed something to take the piss out of City for, we just didn't want it to come with this much cringe. Sometimes these kind of thing needs their own time.
