Man City confident Silva will reject Real Madrid and pen £200,000-a-week deal

Manchester City are confident David Silva will sign his new £52 million deal.

Silva has two years left on his current deal, but will put pen to paper on a new five-year contract worth almost £200,000 a week, says the Daily Star.

City officials met his advisers in Spain last week while Silva was busy helping his country win Euro 2012 and he is set to sign in the next few days.

Silva said: "My home is at City and I am totally satisfied there. My head is not at Real Madrid but at Manchester City.

"I'm grateful for my experience at City and I have improved as a player, in every sense, since I joined them. I didn't know if I was capable of playing like this when I left Valencia.

"I'm on holiday right now, but my agents are negotiating a new deal with City and I think it's likely we close it in a very short time."
