Lazio ‘furious’ after David Silva snubs them for ‘secret’ Real Sociedad transfer despite having agreement to sign


- Advertisment -

LAZIO are “furious” after being snubbed by David Silva, despite having previously agreed a three-year deal with the Spanish playmaker.

The Manchester City legend was due to travel to Rome to undergo a medical with the Serie A side.

But after blanking Lazio’s calls last week, Silva found himself the subject of strong interest from Real Sociedad.

And the LaLiga outfit sensationally hijacked the deal, agreeing a two-year contract with the 34-year-old.

With Silva having been due to give Lazio his final word last Monday, the Italians were still left waiting by the weekend.

And on Sunday they gave him an ultimatum… before his move to Sociedad was officially announced a day later.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Silva’s U-turn has left Lazio bosses “furious”.

While he won’t be the most popular man in Rome at the moment, Silva will eternally be remembered at Man City for his exceptional service in sky blue.

Pep Guardiola’s side have announced that they will erect a statue in his honour outside the Etihad Stadium.

In addition to this, a pitch at their training facility will also be named in his honour.

Having signed from Valencia in 2010, Silva made 436 appearances and helped City win 14 trophies.

And upon announcing his statue, chairman Khaldoon Al-Mubarak said: “David has put his stamp on the team, on this club, it’s history and even the Premier League as a whole.

“In doing so he has been instrumental to the beautiful football philosophy you see today. He was the start of it. He has inspired everyone around him.

“David’s statue will act as a lasting reminder of the wonderful moments that he gave us, not only as an incredible footballer but as an inspiring ambassador who represented this club with great dignity.”
