Silva has played a key part in City’s impressive start to the season which has fired them five points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
The 25-year-old Spain international, who sparkled during City’s 6-1 demolition of derby rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford last Sunday, has been linked with a move back to his homeland this week, with Real and BarÃ§a both said to be interested.
But the midfielder insists he is happy at the Etihad Stadium – and is keen to repay the faith shown in him by the club.
“City believed in me and I’m very well here,” Silva is quoted as saying by the Sun. “Real Madrid and Barcelona are definitely two great clubs but I hope to stay in Manchester for many years.”
