With the 2019-20 Premier League season almost certain to come to a premature end, clubs will soon turn their focus to transfers. Although many players will be unable to get a move they wanted in the summer due to the financial and societal changes caused by COVID-19, many players will be looking for a clean break. In particular, players who have their contracts running out by the end of June.
One such player is David Silva of Manchester City. The Spaniard looks certain to move on, having made clear that this was his final season in Manchester. The talk is that he could make a similar move, though, going to New York City FC in the MLS instead of a return back to Spain. Links to Valencia, his original club, have persisted for a while and could be a realistic move for the young Spaniard. However, a new surprise destination is being mooted: AC Milan.
The Milanese giants are nowhere near the power they once were, having fallen quite spectacularly form the heights they once stood at. Still, a move to the Rossoneri would be a delight for almost any player, and it would be a chance for Silva to head up a whole new project.
The idea seems to have grown legs in the last weeks, with City seemingly happy to say goodbye to one of the best players in their history. Intrigued by the idea of a fresh start, there is talk that Silva will look to try his hand at European football one more time before moving on to start something fresh.
Expect many more clubs to be linked to the playmaker, but for now the only thing that is certain is that his future lies outside of Manchester. We’re sure he’ll have no shortage of takers.
