When Manchester City signed another top quality attacking midfielder in the shape of 100 million pounds ($138.43 million)British record signing Jack Grealish in the close season it appeared Bernardo Silva`s days at the club were numbered.
The 27-year-old was linked with a move by British media, with competition for places so tough given Grealish was added to a list of attackers that included Raheem Sterling, Phil Foden, Kevin De Bruyne, Riyad Mahrez, Ferran Torres and many more.

"I love the club, I love my team mates, I love football here," the determined Silva said. "I`m enjoying it and I`m always going to give my best."
