Well Man City’s ‘scouting network’ have snapped up another star as Valencia’s David Silva has agreed a move to Eastlands on a 4 year deal (subject to passing a medical), for a fee thought to be in the region of £25m.
Silva, who could be heard waxing lyrical about his wishes to join United a couple of weeks ago, must have got his clubs mixed up as the latest quotes from the Spainiard are,
“Firstly I would like to thank Valencia as a club and all of their loyal fans, and my team mates there and staff. I have enjoyed six years at Valencia, they discovered me as a footballer and they will always be a special club for me.
The time is right for me to seek a new challenge, and I am thrilled about playing in England with Manchester City. I believe the Premier League is one of the best competitions in the world and I want to bring success to City and win trophies for them.
With City in the driving seat to sign Yaya Toure too, this season’s Manchester derbies could actually top last season’s in terms of excitement.
