Silva: Garrido convinced me about Man City

David Silva admits his move to Manchester City was influenced by new teammate Javi Garrido.

The former Valencia star pumped Garrido for information about life in Manchester before agreeing his mega bucks move.

Silva told City's website: "He and I played together in Spain's Under-21 side so we have a good relationship, so I called Javi to ask him about City and how things are here in Manchester."
