Bernardo Silva signs new deal keeping him at Man City until 2025

Manchester City forward Bernardo Silva has signed a three-year contract extension that will keep him at the Etihad until 2025.

The Portuguese international, 24, signed a five-year deal when he joined from Monaco in 2017 in a £43 million deal.

"It's an honour to extend my deal with Manchester City," Silva said. "This Club offers everything a player needs to fulfil their ambitions and there's nowhere else I want to be.

"As soon as I heard City wanted me to stay longer, my mind was made up. I love the club, the manager, the players and the fans.

"The style of football we play here excites me, and I am determined to win more silverware. City gives me the best chance of doing that."

Director of Football Txiki Begiristain added: "Bernardo is an exceptional talent, so offering him a new deal and ensuring he spends the best years of his career with us was a very easy decision.

"This is the latest example of our commitment to building a young squad of world-class players.

"We are constructing a side that will provide a platform for sustained success. Bernardo fits neatly into our plan.

"His work-rate, professionalism and technical quality have impressed us and there is plenty of scope for improvement.

"Under the guidance of Pep and the backroom staff we have here, we expect to see him develop into one of the world's best players over the coming years."

Silva has been rewarded with an improved contract after a standout season that saw him earn huge praise from City boss Pep Guardiola for his performances.

City have been busy completing contract extensions with Kevin De Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus, Ederson, David Silva and Sergio Aguero over the past 12 months.
