Manchester City will invite David Silva to return to the club each time that fans are allowed to come back to receive a farewell appropriate for its decade of service to the club.
The manager of the city, Pep Guardiola, has confirmed that Silva would remain at the Etihad stadium until the end of the season re-scheduled in August.
However, the 34-year-old has already decided that he wanted another challenge, the Qatar being the preferred option of the middle of the field winner of the world Cup in Spanish.
This means that the last matches of a career in the city that encompasses all honours won during the era of Sheikh Mansour will be played behind closed doors.
“It is unfortunate that David will finish his last few games here without a team,” said Guardiola. “Nobody wants, but the situation is what it is. ”
In the continuity of Yaya Toure, Pablo Zabaleta, Joe Hart and Vincent Kompany, the output of Silva will mark the departure of another figure of what is destined to go down as a golden era for City, when they appeared as one of the main forces in the English Game.
“These amazing gamers know exactly what they have done to make this club what it is in this moment,” said Guardiola.
“David will stay until the end of the season, and then, when everything gets back to normal, he will return and I hope he can make his farewell to the people. “
