Playmaker Silva not far from Man City return

Manchester City's line-up is only about to get stronger with the impending return of David Silva.

The Spanish playmaker has missed City's past four outings because of a thigh injury and although he is likely to miss this weekend's Premier League clash with Aston Villa, may return for next Wednesday's Champions League home meeting with title holders Bayern Munich.

"I think maybe for next Saturday I don't think he can play but maybe for the next game of Champions League, I think he could be fit," said City boss Manuel Pellegrini who has seen his side dismantle Viktoria Plzen, Manchester United and Wigan Athletic in the past week.
