Upon leaving Manchester City, Spanish midfielder David Silva signed a two-year deal with Real Sociedad, the La Liga club reported on Monday.
Silva, 34, spent a decade with City and made his final appearance in the quarter-finals of the Champions League as a substitute in Saturday’s 3-1 loss at Lyon.
He is expected to join his new team-mates from Sociedad for pre-season training in the coming days.
The La Liga campaign 2020/21 is set to start on September 12. Last season, Sociedad finished 6th to qualify for the Europa League.
In his time in Manchester, Silva won 11 domestic trophies, and is widely regarded as one of the finest imports of the Premier League.
In his memory next year, City said a statue will be erected, while a pitch on the training ground of the club will also be named after him.
Silva is Spain’s fourth-highest goal scorer for all-time appearances and was part of the squads that won the 2010 World Cup and two European Championships in 2008 and 2012.
