3 Prospective Substitute David Silva at Manchester City
David Silva is one of the best players in the history of Manchester City. Since joining in 2010, he has contributed enough assists as well as a goal to win two Premier League titles.
However, Silva’s age is 31 years old. Sooner or later his ability will decrease. Therefore, Manchester City are preparing to find a replacement. There are three names that are shooting.
Who are they? Here are 3 replacement candidates David Silva:
1.) Thiago Alcantara
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is well aware of Thiago’s quality. He is the figure who brought Thiago from Barcelona to Bayern Munich. The player also has the same style of play with Silva.

Last season, Thiago appeared pretty good. Occupying a playmaker position in Munchen, he managed to donate six goals and five assists in 27 Bundesliga matches.
Thiago is still under contract with Munchen until 2021. The selling price is currently around 31 million pounds sterling.
2.) Mesut Ozil
Ozil’s contract at Arsenal will run out next year. The player wants to move closer to Manchester United and reunite with his former coach Jose Mourinho. However, City can overtake the corner if they offer high salaries to Ozil.
Ozil last season contributed eight goals and nine assists in the Premier League. He also created 98 chances with an average of 2.97 chances per game.
3.) Christian Eriksen

Eriksen is a world-class player, but lacks respect. Last season he led Tottenham Hotspur to runner-up position. Eriksen also contributed eight goals.
He is also the top assists scorer in the Premier League, which is 15 assists. Not only that, the Danish player last season created 111 chances for Tottenham with an average of 3.8 per game.
Eriksen is still under contract with Tottenham until 2020. The selling price is currently around 36 million pounds sterling.
