The Spanish midfielder’s contract was due to expire at the end of June, with the 34-year-old captain set to leave after 10 years with the club.

The Premier League is due to restart without spectators on Wednesday and aims to complete the season on 26 July after months of inactivity due to the COVID-19 lockdown.

“David will stay until the end of season,” said Guardiola ahead of the home match against Arsenal.

“He will finish the last games without people. But hopefully he and the club can organise a proper farewell in front of people.”

Silva, who joined City from Valencia in 2010, has won four Premier League titles, two FA Cups and the League Cup five times.

City’s hopes of defending their Premier League title are gone, with Liverpool 25 points clear, but they remain in contention for the Champions League and FA Cup.
