Silva, who was a member of Spain's World Cup winning squad, is hoping to enjoy more celebrations at City following Spain's dramatic extra-time final win over the Netherlands in Johannesburg.
"I'm very happy with what we did this summer - it's the best time that any player can have," Silva told the club's official website.
"I am looking forward to starting the season with my new team, I'm excited about my new team.
"And I will be happy if at the end we are in the Champions League - or if we win a trophy.
"Roberto Mancini and Garry Cook have told me we are building a very good team with some of the best players in the world and we are going to fight for honours."
Silva has set his sights on establishing himself in City's star-studded side and helping them challenge for the title next season.
"My first target is to get into the team, and then to fight for the league and the other competitions," added Silva.
