Bernardo Silva extends Manchester City contract until summer of 2025

Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva has agreed to a new three-year contract extension with the Premier League champions.

The deal means Silva is now committed to City until 2025 after joining from Monaco in a £43m deal two years ago.

The Portuguese 24-year-old has scored five goals and picked up six assists in the Premier League this season.

He joins teammates Raheem Sterling, Aymeric Laporte and Phil Foden in committing to City long term.

Silva’s ninth goal of the season in all competitions came in City’s 7-0 demolition of Schalke in the Champions League last 16 on Tuesday evening.

He has made 29 appearances in the league already this season, proving to be one of Pep Guardiola’s key men as Manchester City chase back-to-back Premier League titles.

Silva previously won league titles in Portugal with Benfica and then in France with Monaco before making the move to England.

The 24-year-old has also won 33 international caps as a regular in Portugal’s side and is expected to be included in the squad for his country’s Euro 2020 qualification double-header against Ukraine and Serbia later this month.
