Silva reveals Los Che needed to sell him to balance the books.
He told the Manchester Evening News: âWhy did I leave Valencia? Because the club needed me to,â he said. âI was happy there and I wouldnât have left, but the situation the club was in demanded it.
âIt was a big injection of money and it was good for them. My life has always gone step by step. I suppose it was time to take the next one.
âCity showed a great interest and I wanted to settle it quickly. It was a very interesting offer, a good club and I didnât have to think too much. Everyone agreed and Iâm very happy.â
