Fresh from his success at Euro 2012, David Silva has targeted further European glory with Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League next season.

Spain's thumping 4-0 win over Italy in the European Championship final capped a fine season for Silva, who was also instrumental in City's Premier League title victory. The only disappointment for the former Valencia man was City's failure in Europe last season, with Roberto Mancini's men crashing out of the Champions League at the group stage and then the last 16 of the Europa League. Silva is determined to set that particular record straight next season - though only after a hard earned rest.

"I want to have my vacation because it has been a long, hard season for me," said Silva. "But once I go back to City, I know I will be fully refreshed because I want to win more trophies with them. "The owners of the club have spent a lot of money bringing good players to the club. We have already started to win titles, including the Premier League. "Now I hope to show we have the quality to do something in the Champions League."

Despite being part of Spain's 2010 World Cup-winning squad, Silva only made it onto the pitch for 66 minutes in South Africa. That is in sharp contrast to his contribution in Poland and Ukraine, where he started every game. Reflecting on the past few weeks - including the tail end of City's dramatic title winning campaign - Silva admits he can scarcely believe what he has achieved.

"I never thought anything like this would be possible", he added. "Of course, every time you go out onto the pitch you try your hardest, then at the end you find out where you have got to. But you never really think about the possibility of winning both. I didn't play much at the World Cup. This time I did a lot more. I played every game, so I am very happy with my contribution. My goal helped the team towards an easy win. It has been a great few weeks for me and it feels superb."

Manchester City ace David Silva is set to snub interest from Real Madrid and put pen to paper on a new deal at the Etihad Stadium.

Silva, who recently helped Spain to a third consecutive major tournament success at Euro 2012, still has two years to run on his current deal but reports suggest he will sign a new five-year contract worth £52million.

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.

Too right. From on the fringes of the Spain team to playing every game at the Euro's

The boy's well on the way to becoming a City legend. I'm pretty much enamored with him.

Lescott, Vinnie, Zabaleta, Clichy, AJ, Silva, Weiss, De jong, Dzeko, Aguero.

Not too sure about Hart or Mario, a few flying round, i may have missed some as well.

Manchester City are on the verge of agreeing a new £200,000-a-week contract with forward David Silva.

The club have been negotiating with Silva all summer as they look to tie one of Europe's hottest properties to a deal for the next five years.

As reported in Sportsmail last month, talks reached a worrying stalemate during pre-season as City struggled to deal with the Spaniard's wage demands.

However, it is understood the arrival of Spanish chief executive Ferran Soriano has given the issue fresh impetus and the club are hopeful of agreeing terms within two weeks.

Tuesday night's Champions League opponents Real Madrid have been tracking Silva's situation at the Etihad Stadium and have asked the 26-year-old's representatives to keep them informed of any problem with his negotiations with City.

Silva is aware of Madrid's interest and has been tempted by a return to Spain.

However, he now looks certain to commit himself to City for the best years of his career.

The club have structured Silva's new deal to give him a basic wage that puts him around the pay levels enjoyed by top earners Carlos Tevez, Vincent Kompany and Yaya Toure.

The incentives are such, though, that success in the Premier League and Champions League over the coming seasons will see his pay tip the £250,000-a-week mark
