The 31-year-old, who is widely recognised as one of Man City’s greatest ever players, has been in fine form the ongoing season during the record-breaking run of 19-consecutive wins that has seen Pep Guardiola’s side establish an eight-point lead at the top of the English Premier League (EPL) table.

Silva said: “I am so happy to have committed my future to City.

“I am incredibly proud of what I have achieved at City in my seven-and-a-half seasons here and with Pep in charge, I feel we are in a great position to win trophies this season and beyond.

“The style of football we are playing is a pleasure to be a part of and I look forward to winning more titles in the years to come.”
