David Silva admits he has no intention of renewing his contract with Manchester City and revealed which LaLiga side he wants to join upon his return to Spain.

Regarded as one of City's all-time greats, Silva won the club's Player's Player of the Year award in 2011-12 and the overall award in 2016-17.

The 32-year-old has represented on City on 349 occasions so far, winning eight trophies along the way.

"For City, two more seasons - what's left on my contract".

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola insists Kevin De Bruyne doesn't have a release clause in his contract, but said the player was not for sale anyway.

'After that, I don't know.

Interestingly, Las Palmas were relegated from Spanish topflight last campaign, but Silva's main concern heading home is more of family reason than football.

Despite showing no signs of slowing down in the Premier League, the former Spanish global only has two more seasons left on his contract at the Etihad, and admits he isn't sure of what his next move will be, despite the constant links with a return to his hometown club, Las Palmas.

"I've spoken before about the figures over the last few years at City, and they just keep getting better". I've always said that I'd like to play for Las Palmas - my local team. "It depends how I feel physically and mentally", Silva said in an interview for the Premier League Show. "The most important thing and the most important issue we have is to help them to grow".

"And although I hesitate to say this in absolute terms, I think they are fast becoming the strongest football club in the country".
