New deal sees Portuguese international stay at The Etihad until 2026
Bernardo Silva has signed a new one-year extension to his contract that will see him stay at The Etihad until the summer of 2026.
The Portuguese international has been linked with a move away from Manchester in recent years, but has now committed his immediate future to the club.
The midfielder, who joined from AS Monaco in 2017, has made 308 appearances for City, scoring 55 goals, and is looking forward to further success with the team.
“I’ve had six incredible years at Manchester City and I’m delighted to extend my time here,” Silva told mancity.com.
“Winning the Treble last season was extremely special and it’s exciting to be part of a squad where there is such a hunger and passion.
“Success makes you want even more, and this Club gives me that opportunity to keep on winning.
"I love the manager, my team-mates and the fans and hope we can share even more great memories in the coming years.”
Director of Football Txiki Begiristain added: “Bernardo has been exceptional during his time at the Etihad, so we’re delighted that he has signed a contract extension with the Club.
“His quality and technical ability is fantastic - and alongside his hard work and professionalism, he has become one of the best players in the world.
“Bernardo was so important in our Treble-winning season and we are sure he can help deliver even more trophies in the next few years.”
