David Silva joins Real Sociedad

After officially leaving Manchester City after the club’s Champions League exit, David Silva has joined Spanish side Real Sociedad.

The Spanish playmaker has decided to move back to his native Spain after 10 years away. The last time Silva played in Spain was back in 2010 for Valencia.

The Spanish side took to its official twitter account to announce the signing to their fans. They confirmed in the tweet that David Silva has signed a two-year deal at the Reale Arena.

The signing has however come as a surprise to many football fans. It was reported that Lazio were the favourites to sign the 34-year-old 

That has since led to Sky Sports Italia reporting Lazio’s anger over the Spaniard’s U-turn on his move to the Stadio Olimpico. 

Silva has attracted a lot of interest since he announced he was leaving the Etihad Stadium. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED BY SKY SPORTS.

However, the fact is Lazio’s loss is certainly Real Sociedad’s gain. The experienced playmaker looks set to be a replacement for Martin Ødegaard who has returned to Real Madrid following a successful loan move.

The experience that Silva will bring could prove to be invaluable for the Basque side who finished sixth in La Liga. That league position saw them qualify for the Europa League group stages.

He now leaves the Etihad Stadium winning 11 major honours in 10 years including four Premier League titles and Manchester City have confirmed via their website that a statue will be built in his honour.

The 34-year-old leaves as one of the greatest players to ever play in the Premier League.
