Bernardo Silva signs new three-year Manchester City contract

Bernardo Silva has extended his commitment to Manchester City by inking a fresh contract that binds him to the club until 2026.

This development coincided with the departure announcement of Aymeric Laporte, a cherished figure among the champions.

Silva, a prominent figure in the European champions’ lineup, has once again been the subject of rumors surrounding a potential transfer away from Etihad Stadium during the summer. Barcelona has reportedly expressed interest in acquiring his services over the past several years.

Nevertheless, the Portuguese international has decisively silenced conjecture about his future by putting pen to paper on a new deal. This move comes as his previous contract was set to expire in 2025.

“I’ve enjoyed an extraordinary six years at Manchester City, and I’m thrilled to extend my tenure here,” Silva expressed.

“I’m embarking on my seventh season with City. Since my arrival, there’s only been one season that wasn’t crowned with success. Thus far, my time here has been synonymous with trophies and victories. I have a penchant for winning, and the sensation of triumph is truly gratifying.”

“Maintaining a victorious team isn’t without its challenges. The feeling is exceptional, and I’m committed to preserving it.”

“The journey thus far has been a dream, considering our accomplishments and the prospects that lie ahead. Over six years, we’ve secured five Premier League titles, one Champions League victory, and triumphs in all cup competitions. Frankly, I couldn’t ask for a more favorable situation.”

“Our exploits from the previous season were nothing short of extraordinary, and we’re determined to seize that opportunity once more in the current season.”

“We’ve heard that clinching a fourth consecutive Premier League title has never been accomplished before, and that’s precisely the challenge we’re aiming for because it’s an immense endeavor.”

Laporte is reportedly set to join Al-Nassr after his impactful five-and-a-half-year stint in English football.

The Spanish international is poised to follow in the footsteps of several notable players who’ve signed with Saudi Pro League clubs. Among them is former City teammate Riyad Mahrez, who recently made the transition to Al-Ahli.

“To the City fans, I wish to share a tale with you,” Laporte conveyed in a Twitter video that also showcased a collection of highlights from his tenure at Man City.

“This narrative now belongs to all of us. Thank you, and we’ll reunite very soon.”
