The Spain international has been instrumental for club and country over the past 12 months, claiming Premier League and Euro 2012 winners’ medals in the process, and an improved five-year deal is rumoured.
City officials reportedly met with the 26-year-old’s advisers last week, and the former Valencia winger is now happy to commit his future to the Premier League champions – with a £200,000-a-week salary touted.
“My home is at City and I am totally satisfied there. My head is not at Real Madrid but at Manchester City,” Silva told the Daily Star.
“I’m grateful for my experience at City and I have improved as a player, in every sense, since I joined them. I didn’t know if I was capable of playing like this when I left Valencia.

“I’m on holiday right now, but my agents are negotiating a new deal with City and I think it’s likely we close it in a very short time.”
Silva is expecting a flurry of transfer activity at the Etihad Stadium this summer, and believes even more medal-laden times are ahead for Roberto Mancini’s side.
“The club are preparing offers for players to improve the squad,” he said. “The project will be very ambitious.”
