Manchester City have found replacement for David Silva in Madrid

Manchester City are already making effort to find replacement for David Silva, who in the end of next season will leave the club.

David Silva moved to Manchester City in 2010 and throughout nine years has come through the stage of a young rookie, who rarely got into the line-up to the main link in Pep Guardiola’s chain. The manager himself did not deny the fact that the Spanish halfback is one of the main reasons for his triumphs in the first to seasons of the EPL,

“Silva is a great player in the European football. He has spent a decade at Manchester City, where it is difficult to express yourself. But he has coped with it extremely well. I hope that this year will turn out productive for all of us.”

Instead of the former Valencia player, Guardiola wants to see a player from the squad of once the most principal opponents – Real Madrid. It is Isco, whom the Catalan considers to be the perfect candidate to replace Silva. Guardiola also has been following the Spaniard’s performance for a long time and knows the ex-Malaga player’s lowdown in Madrid.

According to rumors, is in the sphere of interest of Zinedine Zidane, whereas the whole last season the player rarely appeared on the pitch under the management of Lopetegui and Solari. This led to a gaming recession in the player as well as his shape and gaining excessive kilograms. Real Madrid have already seriously spent money on the transfer market; therefore Los Blancos will have to sell players to fit under financial fair-play.

Considering the situation, Real are willing to let the Spaniard go for no less than 80 million euros, as the club understands that the compensation of 700 million euros will not attract buyers. Isco reminds Silva indeed, back since he was playing for Malaga. Back then he was compared to the countryman, who performed at Valencia, because of creative game, field vision and playmaker skills. It is no surprise that Guardiola became interested in him, because he would perfectly fit his Barcelona and Manchester City even more so, considering a more attacking football, which the Citizens play.
