David Silva admits he's working on bringing Barcelona striker David Villa to Manchester City.

The pair enjoyed success with Valencia.

Silva smiled: "David Villa. I just know he's a world-class striker. We have a lot of superstars already but there is always room for one more like him.

"If there was one more to arrive it would be brilliant to sign someone like him - a really huge signing.

"He scores a lot of goals, we had a great understanding from all those years together at Valencia - I rate him so highly.

"We've stayed in touch, we are often texting or talking on the phone. He likes it at Barcelona but I've been telling him how much I am enjoying life in England."
