Veteran midfield maestro David Silva will get a send-off once fans return to the Etihad stadium.
Pep Guardiola says David Silva will get a proper send-off once it is possible to play in front of the Manchester City supporters.
The Spain great is set to leave the Etihad this summer following his 10-year spell with the Citizens and is unlikely to play in front of the City supporters at the moment due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, Guardiola has confirmed his compatriot will receive a send-off as soon as it is feasibly possible.
"We are going to when it is possible to have people back to the Etihad to try and have not one empty seat for this incredible legend," Guardiola said as skysports.com reported.
"With Joe Hart, Vincent Kompany, Yaya Toure, Pablo Zabaleta - these players bring these players to another level and they deserve real fireworks."
Asked whether City would look to replace Silva, Guardiola added: "In this position, when David says it is his last year, I spoke with the board that we have Phil [Foden] so we don't have to invest."
