Man City veteran David Silva received massive Vissel Kobe offer

Manchester City midfielder David Silva has turned down a bumper offer from Vissel Kobe.

The Times says the big spending J-League outfit tabled Silva a lucrative contract offer to move to Japan this summer.

However, Silva has chosen to stay with City and see out his current deal - which runs to the end of next season.

Should the 33 year-old stay with City to 2020, it will mark a decade with the club for the former Valencia midfielder.

Silva's decision is a relief to manager Pep Guardiola, whose midfield remains reliant on the veteran.
