He joined Manchester City a decade ago for a whopping £25million from Spanish club Valencia and has gone on to create history, leaving long lasting memories in England.

For a man who already had a World Cup and a European Championship medal, it looked like a bold decision.

He recalls how it all started when he arrived at the club and now he could not imagine what he has achieved with the team.

Silva said in a recent interview ahead of his exit: “They had told us we had a project and it was to win trophies — and then in my first year we won the FA Cup. The rest is history."
