Reports: David Beckham, Inter Miami set to sign Man City star David Silva

According to several reports, midfielder David Silva is reported to likely join Major League Soccer’s newest franchise Inter Miami after the end of the Premier League season, making it David Beckham’s first big signing for the club.

David Beckham entered the MLS as the league’s first worldwide soccer star in 2007, after arriving from powerhouse Real Madrid. He wants the league to continue to bring in superstars and is hoping to bring them to his franchise in South Beach. Although Silva is not a household name like Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, he is a player that a team can easily build around.

Since Silva arrived from Valencia nine years ago for £26 million, he has been a catalyst in Man City’s success over the past few years. He has won four Premier League titles, two FA Cups, and four League Cups. Silva has also been a pivotal part in Spain’s history as he was won two European championships and the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. 

Although Silva would miss the first three months of the inaugural season as the MLS campaign starts in March, he may not be the only player arriving in Miami late. There have been several reports that Paris Saint-Germain and Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani is also a target for the team. Also, it was reported that Beckham and his partners Jorge Mas and Paul McDonough were in Barcelona this month, apparently approaching Lionel Messi and Luis Suárez.

Inter Miami had already signed three players prior to the Silva reports. Forward Julián Carranza (Banfield) and midfielder Matías Pellegrini (Estudiantes) are both on loans at their respective teams in Argentina’s Primera División, while Venezuelan defender Christian Makoun arrives after being on loan at Juventus’ U-23 team.

Who is Man City’s most important player?

Manchester City are arguably one of the best teams in Europe at the moment, if not the best. With Pep Guardiola at the club, the Spaniard has managed to create one of the greatest squads ever assembled and Fabian Delph still get’s the nod when fit. A squad filled an army of world-class talent that isn’t afraid to get down and got to war when needed to.

With players such as David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling and so many more it’s incredibly hard to single out one player as Manchester City’s most important player but for me, it can only be one man.

I nearly went for Fernandinho and I wouldn’t be wrong if I did as he is the anchor for The Cityzens and when he doesn’t play the club do suffer as his role is so hard to fill. When Fernandinho has been injured this season it has been very noticeable that he hasn’t played.

However, the player that I have opted for in terms of Manchester City’s most important player is Portuguese playmaker Bernardo Silva. Signed last season from Monaco for 42 million pounds not many knew what Pep was getting from the man nicknamed ‘Bubblegum’. Silva didn’t take to life instantly at the Etihad initially struggling to get into the team ahead of Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva. Towards the end of last season, we got glimpses of just how special he was but the 18/19 campaign was destined for Bernardo to officially announce himself.

Knee injuries for De Bruyne allowed Silva to establish himself in the starting XI in his preferred central position and it was evident he offered something different for City in terms of his work rate. This is highlighted perfectly is his performance against Liverpool in a 2-1 win at The Etihad. Bernardo covered a staggering 13.7 kilometres in the game which was the highest from any player so far this season and he probably still could’ve carried on.

Silva has eight goals and eight assists so far this season and his first touch is absolutely outstanding. Should Man City continue to fight on all fronts then Bernardo Silva will be at the centre of it all as he is for Man City’s most important player.

Who should win PFA Player of the Year?

It is the time of year that the PFA Player of the Year nominees are announced, and there have been some excellent players exceed expectations and have been performing out of their skin consistently for the whole of the season.

Manchester City have recently been confirmed as champions, and Pep Guardiola has seen three of his players be nominated for the Player of the Year award: David Silva, Leroy Sané and Kevin de Bruyne.

On the other side of Manchester, only David de Gea has been nominated from the Old Trafford squad. Meanwhile, the other two nominations are the league’s two top goalscorers, Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.

A lot of fans, players, managers etc have said in interviews and on social media that the award should be either between Kevin de Bruyne or Mohamed Salah.

de Bruyne leads the assist chart with 15 to his name, along with seven goals. He has averages 73 successful passes per match and has been the key to Manchester City’s incredible success and will earn his medal more than any player in a sky blue shirt.

Salah joined Liverpool for £36.9m from AS Roma and in his first season at Anfield has seen him score 30 goals and easily able to break the record for most goals in a season, and has guided the Reds to the semi-final of the Champions League and third place in the Premier League.

Behind the stats, the two have been incredibly impressive with their performances and pride they show for their respective clubs, and have attracted the attention the world.

It is almost impossible to decide who wins this award, but to nearly break a goalscoring record in his first season, and to be the most crucial cog in Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool machine, it would have to go to Salah, but it’s fair to say there would be no complaints if de Bruyne were to claim the award.
