Atletico Madrid in talks with Man City winger Silva about Spain return

Atletico Madrid want to bring Manchester City star David Silva back to Spain.

The former Valencia man has won great praise for the way he has settled in the Premier League.

The Daily Mail says Silva's struggle to adapt to life in Manchester has alerted Atletico, who wanted to sign him last season and they have already held talks with his agent Julio Llorente.

Atletico are aware that even if City could be persuaded to sell one of the best assets they would want to at least recuperate the money they paid for the 25-year-old but they are willing to negotiate and offer players in part exchange.

City will be hoping Silva changes his mind about life in England, especially following last weekend's super display in the Manchester derby at Old Trafford, in which he scored City's goal in a 2-1 defeat.
