David Silva deserves more recognition as Manchester City's main magician

David Silva has signed a new five-year contract with Manchester City, committing his future to the Premier League champions until 2019.

Shaun Wright-Phillips isn't exactly renowned as an authority on Arthurian legend. But, taken aback by the sorcery of one of his Manchester City colleagues, he christened him "Merlin." The nickname, which stems from the wizard at the mythical King Arthur's court, is probably the lasting legacy of Wright-Phillips' second spell at City.

"Merlin the magician" -- otherwise known as David Silva -- has a range of tricks. He can thread a pass through the eye of a needle. He has an uncanny understanding...

While my colleague David Mooney has put forward the unlikely credentials of Scott Sinclair, it's fair to say Manuel Pellegrini is unlikely to put his faith in the forgotten man.

Sergio Aguero should be back for Man City in January, says Manuel Pellegrini

ESPN FC's Craig Burley and Stuart Holden examine Manchester City's chances of getting revenge against Barcelona in their Round of 16 Champions League tie.
