Manchester City's Bernardo Silva says he wants to "build a legacy" for the club and help continue to break more records.
City secured the Premier League title with five games to spare - a joint-league record - after neighbours Manchester United suffered a shock defeat to West Brom on Sunday.
"We've always said that the important thing was to win it," Silva told Sky Sports News. "It didn't matter how, but now that we've done it, if we can break a few records we will try."
The Portuguese made 31 league appearances in his first season for City and has relished the chance to play alongside such attacking talent.
"It's great because it's so easy to play alongside players like Gabriel [Jesus], Kun [Aguero], Leroy [Sane], [Raheem] Sterling, [Kevin] De Bruyne, [David] Silva, [Iikay] Gundogan.
"It looks so easy because they find you in such good positions, and the way the team plays, so it's been a great experience for me, my first season and I'm already looking forward to the next ones."
It's the first Premier League title under Pep Guardiola and the midfielder puts his manager's influence down to a lot of their success this season.
"I think everyone knows how good he is and the way he likes his teams to play," he said. "It's been fantastic, personally I've learnt so much every day with him.
"Not only with him, but with all the staff and with the players. I'm looking forward to next season to do even better and try to win more titles."
For all their achievements this season, Silva says the Champions League is still a major target, after being knocked out in the quarter-finals by Liverpool this term.
"We tried this season to go as far as we could, unfortunately against Liverpool those games were not good for us," he added.
"Obviously it's a goal we have. It's probably the most important competition, so we will try to win it."
