De Bruyne has now played alongside Silva for four years, and since City secured his £55m signature in 2015.
“Kevin is a fantastic player and we are lucky to have him," Silva told City's website.
“He'll be one of the players to make a big step forward in the future because he's one of the most experienced in a young squad.
“As time goes by your time arrives. Last season we missed him a lot, but he's going to be great for us."
