The Spaniard has won four Premier League titles, four League Cups and two FA Cups since joining City in 2010
David Silva is set to leave Manchester City at the end of next season, according to reports.
The 33-year-old is expected to run down his contract at the Etihad and finish his career at boyhood club Las Palmas in Spain.
The Sun claim Silva will be given a testimonial match to commemorate ten years at the Etihad next summer.
He has enjoyed a trophy-laden spell in England since joining City in a £26million deal from Valencia in 2010, winning four Premier League titles, four League Cups and two FA Cups.
Silva has scored 71 goals in 396 appearances for the club, and will hope to further increase that tally before departing.
