A Manchester City legend is said to have responded after he received a 'dizzying' offer to join Cristiano Ronaldo at Al Nassr. 

Al Nassr are understood to be continuing their quest to bring some of the Europe's most recognisable names to the Saudi Pro League.

The club have targeted a number of players in the twilight of their careers and since acquiring the services of Ronaldo, they have been linked with moves for Paris Saint-Germain defender Sergio Ramos, Real Madrid duo Luka Modric and Karim Benzema, as well as FC Barcelona's Sergio Busquets.

City legend David Silva, who has a statue outside the Etihad Stadium, is believed to be the Saudi outfit's latest transfer target, as the playmaker will be out of contract at the end of June. 

According to Relevo, the Real Sociedad star was presented with a "dizzying offer" comprising of a lucrative financial package. Garry Cook, former City executive director between 2008 and 2011, is said to the key at trying to convince Silva to join Riyadh-based club due to his current position as the president of the Saudi Arabian Pro League.

However, the aforementioned publication now reports that the former Spain star is uninterested in the move despite its alluring benefits.

The 37-year-old is said to be adamant about staying in Spain with his family, as he prioritizes the "tranquility and comfort" he enjoys in San Sebastian with his wife, two children, and the rest of his relatives. The 2010 FIFA World Cup winner is now expecting Sociedad to extend his contract beyond the 2022/23 season.
