Club legend David Silva has confirmed that next season will be his last as a Manchester City player.
The Spanish midfielder, who joined City from Valencia for £21m in June 2010, is into the final 12 months of his existing deal.
Silva feels that a decade is the right milestone to bow out of the Etihad Stadium, making 2019-20 his final season for the Citizens.
"This is the last one - 10 years for me is enough. It's the perfect time for me," he told reporters when asked if he could sign a new contract.
"Initially, City were talking about two years, but I decided to sign another one, so I finished at 10 years. It completes the cycle. It's a nice round figure. I can never see myself playing against City for another team. So 10 years - that's it."
Silva has previously admitted that he would like to end his career with Las Palmas, but they were relegated to Spain's second tier last year.
During his time in Manchester, the 33-year-old has won four league titles, two FA Cups and four EFL Cups.body check tags ::
