    The Independent article is clear that it'll be summer 2020:

    He'll be 34.5 by the time he plays in MLS.

    A lot can happen between now and then...he's already going to be a DP so not like they couldn't throw money at Man City to make him come half a season earlier.

    But City would probably not want to help a team other than NYCFC unless it is major bucks.

    Didn't Gio Reyna sign at Dortmund? You'd have thought that CFG would have tried to keep him in the family.........

    Anywho, Silva has been a stalwart and talismanic for Man City. If he wants to play in Miami, it's very doubtful they'd prevent him from doing that.

    hard to get too excited about a 35yo, hopefully they balance that with some big time teenage prospects

    Pellegrini (19) is a young DP while Carranza 19) apparently is a regular or TAM signing as is Makoun (19, see a pattern?). They signed Norman from VWFC and, depending on reports, are in negotiations with Exequiel Palacios (20) and already agreed to a deal with Matias Godoy (17). Grabbing Silva as an experienced leader and a mentor to that group makes perfect sense if they aren't landing Messi (HAHAHAHA, I'd die) or even Palacios (someone who was apparently going to Real Madrid before he got injured last winter). Doesn't hurt that he can still start for one of the best teams in the world. We get hung up on age but does anyone seriously think that there are all but about 15 teams in the world that wouldn't take him next year?

    It is also Sept 20th, did you think

    a) The signing was happening tomorrow? or
    b) Silva's contract expired on a random weekend 5 games into the season?

    So yeah, 2020.
