Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva has agreed a new contract running until 2025, the Premier League champion has announced.

Silva joined City for £43.5 million in 2017 after playing a starring role in Monaco's title-winning season in Ligue 1, also shining as it knocked out Pep Guardiola's side on the way to the Champions League semifinals. 

The Portugal international's terms at the Etihad Stadium ran until June 2022 but he becomes the latest City player to be tied down to a long-term extension after excelling this term – regularly earning fulsome praise from Guardiola. 

"It's an honour to extend my deal with Manchester City,” Silva said. "This club offers everything a player needs to fulfil their ambitions and there's nowhere else I want to be. 

"As soon as I heard City wanted me to stay longer, my mind was made up. I love the club, the manager, the players and the fans. 

"The style of football we play here excites me, and I am determined to win more trophies. City gives me the best chance of doing that."
