‘I am just leaving the message to tell you how important you are to Manchester City,’ Mendy said via a video message to French TV channel Canal  where Silva was a guest.

‘The player you are, the talent that you have, it is incredible.

‘I call you Pablo Picasso, that’s how good you are. I hope that you continue like this, and I wish you all the best for the rest of your career and for many years to come at Manchester City, winning lots of titles.

‘And don’t ever change, you are a fantastic person, and you are part of my heart.’

Mendy also tweeted a picture of himself kissing Silva, underlining his love for the Portugal international.
