Silva reveals Los Che needed to sell him to balance the books.
He told the Manchester Evening News: â€śWhy did I leave Valencia? Because the club needed me to,â€ť he said. â€śI was happy there and I wouldnâ€™t have left, but the situation the club was in demanded it.
â€śIt 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.
â€śCity showed a great interest and I wanted to settle it quickly. It was a very interesting offer, a good club and I didnâ€™t have to think too much. Everyone agreed and Iâ€™m very happy.â€ť
