Manchester City are preparing a massive new contract offer for David Silva to consider.

City are making their move amid talk of Real Madrid president Florentino Perez preparing a bumper offer for the Spain midfielder.

The Daily Star Sunday says City are so keen to keep their playmaker they are ready to offer a new deal worth a staggering £52million over the next five years.

The new deal would be worth around £200,000-a-week, which would put him in a similar pay category to team-mates Sergio Aguero, Carlos Tevez and Yaya Toure.
