Man City chiefs determined to give David Silva send off he deserves

Manchester City chiefs are determined to give David Silva the send off he deserves.

The Daily Mail says Silva may be offered a special farewell game at The Etihad if the Coronavirus outbreak prevents him from saying goodbye as planned on May 17.

Silva, regarded as one of the greatest players in the club's history, announced in September he'll leave City at the end of this season.

The Spaniard has been linked with a move to David Beckham's Inter Miami club in America's MLS.

A tribute for him was planned at City's final game of the Premier League campaign against Norwich next month but there is no guarantee the match will take place with the season postponed indefinitely.

Silva has not contacted the club about his situation but City are determined to mark the 34-year-old's departure in some way.
