Just days after the Spaniard snatched the only goal in a narrow win over the Chinese, Silva's agent says David is committed to The Blues.
Spain completed their pre Euro preparations at the weekend with a 1-0 win over China PR.
As he was for City last season, David Silva proved crucial to the team's success, snatching an 84th minute winner.
As well as sparking much conversation about his value to the national side, it also raised questions about David's club future - with thought that Real could make a move for the 26-year-old over the summer.
The Mail brings music to City fans' ears on the subject, reporting that David has no interest in joining Jose Mourinho's side.
The paper quoted his agent as saying,
We are ignoring the plans of Real Madrid because he (David) is very integrated at City and
winning the Premier League has only increased his commitment to the club.
Meanwhile, the Daily Star reports City defender Joleon Lescott has hit out at Belgium's Dries Mertens for putting his national team mate Gary Cahill out of Euro 2012.
The Chelsea star suffered a broken jaw when he collided with England and City's Joe Hart, after being shoved in the back by Mertens, during England's 1-0 win over Belgium on Saturday
Despite Mertens claiming the incedent was accisental, Lescott felt he should have been punished with more than a booking saying,
"The challenge was more reckless and dangerous than most two-footed tackles, so why only a yellow?”
Finally, there's talk that Roberto Mancini is chasing the highly rated Javi Martinez of Athletic Bilbao.
