David Josué Jiménez Silva (-esdaˈβið xoˈswe xiˈmeneθ ˈsilβa) (born 8 January 1986) is a Spanish footballer who plays for Manchester City and the Spanish national team. Silva is capable of playing on the wing, as a traditional number 10 and sometimes as a supporting striker.

He spent six years of his professional career with La Liga side Valencia CF, appearing in more than 150 games and winning one Copa del Rey, before moving in 2010. City manager Roberto Mancini mainly deployed Silva as a winger and later in a trequartista role in his first season but is utilised in a playmaker role with Samir Nasri behind Sergio Agüero and Edin Džeko. A Spanish international since the age of 20, he was a member of the squads that won both the Euro 2008 and 2010 World Cup.
