Reports have emerged claiming that outgoing Manchester City captain David Silva has agreed to join Lazio on a three-year contract.

David Silva will end a decade-long spell with Manchester City once his contract expires at the end of the month.

The 34-year-old remains one of the most talented playmakers around and is already gathering interest in Europe and the MLS. Thus, it’s only a matter of time before he makes an announcement.

Former club Valencia were the alleged favorites to sign Silva this summer. Their current turmoil both on and off the pitch, however, has seemingly put them out of contention. So now Lazio are set to pick up the pieces.

According to Fabrizio Romano on The Guardian, Silva will join the Biancocelesti on a three-year deal once City’s Champions League campaign has finished.

The World Cup winner’s arrival will surely serve as a boost to the already remarkable talent in Lazio’s ranks, such as European Golden Shoe winner Ciro Immobile and Luis Alberto.

Despite his age and limited minutes this season, Silva still managed six goals and 10 assists in 27 Premier League appearances this season.
