Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva’s stunning form this season was rewarded with a new six-year deal on Wednesday. The Portuguese playmaker has arguably been the English champions’ player of the year so far, scoring nine goals in 40 appearances. “It’s an honour to extend my deal with Manchester City,” Silva said in a club statement. “This club offers everything a player needs to fulfil their ambitions and there’s nowhere else I want to be.” Silva has already won a Premier League title and two League Cups since joining from Monaco for a reported £43 million in 2017. And more could soon follow as the 24-year-old was on target in City’s 7-0 thrashing of Schalke on Tuesday as they progressed to the quarter-finals of the Champions League. (AFP)
