Few players have had as great an impact on one club as David Silva has had for Manchester City.

The Spanish midfielder joined the club back in 2010 and ten years, 300+ appearances and a hatful of trophies later, the man they call El Mago will go down as one of the greatest players to ever wear a Manchester City shirt.

He's set to leave the club at the end of the season and to honour his Manchester City legacy, EA have released this End of an Era card - available as either default or premium - which you can unlock via this limited-time SBC.

Who to pick?

Right from the start we’ll say this. Neither of these two cards are bad value for money.

You’re looking at around the 150k mark for the 94-rated version of this card whilst you’ll be spending an extra 100-150k for the 97-rated card, plus you’ll also get those three packs for completing the Premium version.

But the question is, is the extra money worth it? Let’s see...

You’re getting a significant upgrade in terms of Silva’s pace for starters - the sprint speed boost in particular (75 on his base and 85 on his premium) - is massive.

His shooting (89 on his base and 93 on his premium) is good on both cards and the upgrade isn’t that neccessary if you’re looking to play him as a CAM. It’s decent on both and in honesty, you’re not going to be shooting an awful lot with him when you look at his passing stats...

He has 95 OVR passing on his base card and 98 on his premium. If you’re going to use him for your basic short passing then there’s no need to upgrade as he has maxed out 99 ratings on both cards in that department. If you’re looking to be more adventurous then he’ll be worth the upgrade.

His dribbling on his upgraded card is perfect at 99 OVR, but his 96 on his base is still very good. You’ll be getting 4* skills and a disappointing 3* weak foot on both cards as well as M/H work rates.

The verdict? If you’re going to use this card for more than just your one-twos then his upgrade will be worth the extra money. If you can’t afford the extra cash or simply just don’t want to spend it then fear not, as his base card is still very good!
