David Silva: Has no intention of breaking long-term contract

The Spain international, who has been speaking to Mundo Deportivo while on World Cup qualifying duty, only signed a new five-year contract at City in September 2012.

He intends to honour that agreement and claims he would not have signed if he was not happy in England.

The 27-year-old has been forced to clear up issues regarding his future in the wake of speculation suggesting he could soon be heading home.

Real, who are known to be long-time admirers of Silva, are said to have made the World Cup winner a top target ahead of another lavish spending spree next summer.

Silva, though, insists there is no substance to the rumours and that he is going nowhere.

He told Mundo Deportivo: "I'm very happy in Manchester and I think this is similar to what happens every year.

"There are always rumours and, in the end, the player has to be calm. I renewed my contract because I am happy over there (in Manchester)."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
