David Silva has an appreciation for Italian football and can visualize having a long term future in Serie A, claims the midfielder’s father.

David Silva continues to browse options for his next destination as he prepares to bring an end to his decade long Manchester City career.

The Spaniard bid farewell to the fans following Man City’s final Premier League game of the 2019/20 season and will drop to the free-agent pool once the Champions League campaign ends.

Lazio are said to be leading his chase as they are ‘confident’ of reaching an agreement with him.

Amid the speculations regarding his future, the 34-year old’s father feels Lazio indeed would be the ideal destination for his son while also ruling out his return to Spain.

“I can confirm that he loves Serie A and would really enjoy playing in Italy. He told me he could play there until he’s 40,” Fernando Silva said, as Sky Sports reports.

“At the moment, there are many offers and he has to decide, but I’d love it if he signed for Lazio, because even if Rome is quite far away, it’d be a huge opportunity for him.

“I know it’s unlikely he’ll come back to Spain, as he always tells me to rule out the idea of a return to Valencia.”
