David Silva will not decide his post-Manchester City career move until after the season is over, hopefully after he lifts the Champions League.

Manchester City player David Silva insists that the only certainty in his football career right now is that he is leaving the team at the end of the season.

There have been plenty of rumors and speculation, but the Spaniard is adamant he has no agreement with anyone.

According to an interview reported by Goal, he maintains his focus is on lifting trophies with City before he ends his ten-year relationship with the club.

Silva said:

“Everything is on standby, there’s nothing for now.”

“I’m back in training again and looking at places where I feel I can be at 100 per cent.”

“Some friends text me with stories saying I’m going to this place or this other place, but they actually know more than me.”

“Honestly, now I’m waiting that we go through all this situation.”

“I’ve had 10 years in Manchester and I’ve accomplished what I wanted to. My era ends here.”

Silva is a European Championship and World Cup winner with Spain, as well as League and cup titles with City.

However, when asked about the Champions League, he admits it would be nice to finally lift the trophy that has alluded him his entire career.

“It’s going to be a bit weird.”

“We’ll have to wait for what they tell us and try to get there in the best condition. I’d love to win it.”

Manchester City and Pep Guardiola will have a job on their hands this summer. Replacing a talent like Silva will not be easy, and certainly not cheap.
