Spanish attacking midfielder David Silva is hands down one of the best footballers in the Premier League at the moment. Manchester City, therefore, couldn't resist themselves from offering a contract extension to the 31-year-old.

He signed a one-year extension with the Premier League table toppers on Thursday, thus securing his future until 2020.

Of course, Man City fans on social media couldn't contain their excitement on the happy news, but certain fans were left pleasantly surprised with Silva's 'size'. We're not talking of his height here...which is 1.70m!

It all started when a locker room image of celebrations was posted by Silva's teammate Kevin de Bruyne on Instagram after Man City beat Southampton 2-1 on Wednesday in a Premier League midweek match.

Positive mind until the end??

Silva was the only one in the photo who didn't have his pants on. The Spaniard turned up to pose in his white underwear...and the "squirrels inside" remained the talk of social media.

Check out these hillarious tweets:

This user even thanked Pep Guardiola for Silva's massive development!

'David Silva package' is trending on Twitter and we can't help but laugh out loud at this! Will Silva come out with a comment on the sudden attention he is receiving? Well, we are not sure. His future wife definitely might be biting her lips, we assume.

The Spaniard has made 324 appearances in all competitions for Manchester City so far, scoring 52 goals.
