After joining Man City in 2010, David Silva looks set to say farewell to the Etihad season ahead of joining Inter Miami, the new MLS club part-owned by David Beckham.
It is understood that the Spanish star will prove a hit with the large Hispanic community in Florida ahead of their debut season in the league. Since arriving from Valencia at the beginning of the decade, the 33-year-old has helped the Mancunian club win four Premier League titles, two FA Cups and four League Cups.

However Man City's captain will remain with the club until the end of the season, the UK's Independent are reporting, meaning he will miss the beginning of the MLS season with his new club which begins in March.
The new franchise are currently spending $60 million dollars on a stadium renovation in Fort Lauderdale ahead of moving into a brand new 25,000-seater Miami Freedom Park in 2022 which is believed to be part of a $1 billion project.
Clearly money is no issue. In fact, the club are believed to have been interested in both Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez before pursuing Silva, though more big names are expected to follow the midfielder to the new club in the coming months.
