The Citizens and Portugal midfielder has had a superb season for club and country, and there have been calls for him to win the Ballon d'Or.
The 24-year-old has enjoyed a superb 2018-19, helping the Citizens to a domestic quadruple - the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and Community Shield.
As if that wasn't enough, Silva also helped the Selecao to their second trophy in three years as they won the inaugural UEFA Nations League, adding to their Euro 2016 triumph.
The Citizens ace was subsequently named Player of the Tournament following Portugal’s 1-0 final win over the Netherlands on Sunday evening.
Here is what Silva tweeted following his fifth winner's medal of the past 12 months:
Needless to say there was a lot of love for Silva, with Man City's official account declaring as such:
