In the midfield for Manchester City, there's no denying Kevin De Bruyne is the leader of the pack. However, as world class as the Belgian sensation is, you can't forget about the other guys who are magicians with the ball as well. 

 

And over at the Etihad Stadium, Pep Guardiola is a lucky man, as among the other great talents he has at his disposal in the middle is Portuguese standout Bernardo Silva. 

 

Ever since joining the club in 2017, Silva has been a key contributor for the club and has made more than 100 total appearances. On Monday, Silva is celebrating his 26th birthday and has been showered with love from teammates and fans. 

 

For all of you Manchester City fans out there, you can celebrate his special day by rewatching some of his best moments while donning the team's colors. Whether you're looking for incredible passes or goals, the clip below will have exactly what you're looking for. 

As you can see in those highlights from this past campaign, Silva has been his usual outstanding self whenever he's on the pitch for City. 

 

But, just because the EPL season is over, that doesn't mean MC is done chasing some more hardware. The club, which already won the Carabao Cup earlier this year, now has its focus on the Champions League. 

 

After defeating Real Madrid 2-1 both in Spain and at the Etihad, Man City is in the quarterfinals and will face Lyon with a trip to the semis on the line. Silva has been a key part of the current CL run and has dreams of helping the team win it all later this summer. 

 

Silva's next goal will mark his 20th with the team ever since joining in '17. It goes without saying, but fans would love if it came at some point in a heated CL match to help the club keep on advancing. 

 

Being only 26 too, Silva is about to enter the prime of his career. We're all excited to see just how much better he can get in Manchester. Cheers to Bernardo Silva, may he have a happy birthday!
