Silva had no hesitation when Man City came calling

David Silva says he had no hesitation when Manchester City came calling before the World Cup.

The winger left Valencia for City last summer.

Silva told City's website: "I remember getting the news City were interested in signing me during my last matches with Valencia.

"I wanted to keep a clear mind after the season with the World Cup approaching and I decided I was ready for a fresh challenge. I had heard a lot of good things about Manchester and it was clear that City's ambition matched my own.

"I know that the weather in Manchester is different than Valencia or Canaries, but I come to Manchester to play football in a great team, not for sunbathing or going to the beach!"
