They may have lost the Community Shield but BBC Sport contains some news that will certainly cheer Manchester City fans up here in the Football Transfer Tavern.
The publication report that not only have the Citizens landed one of the best defenders around in Eliaquim Mangala but they have also made a move to keep one of their best players at the club with David Silva signing a new deal.
The Spaniard has committed his future to the Etihad Stadium by putting pen to paper on a five-year contract extension and that certainly speaks volumes.
City have been moving to consolidate their squad this summer along with bringing in a couple of additions to boot and we think that they have the most complete squad in the league – by some distance.
As Silva noted, City are building a brilliant team and have a bright future ahead. Being one of the best teams in the world, he would not even consider going anywhere else and we don’t blame him.
Manchester City fans. Is getting Silva to commit to the club a top decision? Who would you like to see follow suit now and sign a new deal? Let us know your thoughts below.
