Man City star Silva rules out exit

22nd January 2019, 13:54 by Gareth Freeman

Bernardo Silva says he is open to a Manchester City contract extension amid reports of interest from Real Madrid.

Silva has established himself as a key man for the Premier League champions and there has been speculation Spanish giants Real could make a move for the Portugal international.

The 24-year-old midfielder has now moved to end any transfer talk as he says he has no interest in leaving the Etihad Stadium.

Silva is under contract with City until 2022 and he is open to an extension as he wants to help the club battle for silverware in the years ahead.

"I'm OK right now, I still have three-and-a-half years left. I don't know what will happen but we will see. I'm happy at City and if they want to renegotiate my contract then of course I'm open to doing that," said the former Benfica and Monaco star, as reported by the Manchester Evening News.

"I'm very happy here at Man City - not only with the staff but I look around at my teammates and it is a young team that can achieve fantastic things. To look at the future and think that if we stay together we can do special things, I am very happy here and want to stay."

He added: "We have a very young squad with a lot of very good players and we will try to win as many things as we can over the next seasons."

City turn their focus to the FA Cup this weekend as they entertain Burnley and punters may wish to use their free bet to back them to win the competition this season.
