David Silva will be 35 by the time his Manchester City contract expires and it sounds like he's already decided where he wants to see his career out.

The 22-year-old was one of City's most influential players in last season's record-breaking title win but has been out of favour so far under Guardiola.

Despite showing no signs of slowing down in the Premier League, the former Spanish worldwide only has two more seasons left on his contract at the Etihad, and admits he isn't sure of what his next move will be, despite the constant links with a return to his hometown club, Las Palmas.

"I don't know about the salaries or the wages, it's the business of the club", Guardiola said.

"It depends on how I feel physically".

He says he will always view City as the club who gave him his biggest shot.

"Our aim is obviously to build on the achievements of the a year ago", City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said. "When I see the World Cup, I think I would like to be there".

However, after dismissing suggestions of problems between himself and Sane, City manager Pep Guardiola recalled the Germany winger to the starting lineup and was quickly rewarded.

"After two or three days of training with him, he came to me and said, "I like this one".

Leroy Sane, David Silva and Raheem Sterling scored as the Premier League champions maintain their unbeaten start to the new season.

"I really care about our positional play, if we are not in good positions mistakes arrive. City want me, so that's where I'll go". I used to move around a lot and wanted to be all over the place.

Last December, Silva's son Mateo was born prematurely.

- Courtesy of this victory, Manchester City have won six consecutive Premier League matches against a single London team for the first time.

"It was so hard with him being in hospital for so long".

It remains to be seen whether Silva can help his beloved team to achieve bigger and better things this season but if he were to leave in the near future, winning the Champions League would surely be the flawless ending.
