The former AS Monaco midfielder, who is having a great season individually (53 games, 7 goals, 8 assists) and sportingly (England champion, FA Cup and Champions League finalist), has several once hinted he could leave Manchester City at the end of the current season.

Under contract until 2025, Bernardo Silva is publicly courted by FC Barcelona. In an interview for Mundo DeportivoBlaugrana coach Xavi Hernandez has indicated he will be “marvellous” to count on the Portuguese next season, while affirming that he was “very difficult” to recruit the midfielder, who belongs to Manchester City. And the price demanded at Barça, as at Paris Saint-Germain, can deter the two formations: the Cityzens claim 80 million euros for Bernardo Silva.

In financial difficulty, despite the departures of Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba, the Catalan club seems far from being able to spend such a sum for the Portuguese international (80 selections).

Guardiola doesn’t know Silva’s future

On the eve of facing Manchester United in the FA Cup final, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has spoken about the Portuguese’s future. According to the Spaniard, it is necessary to wait until the end of the season to position oneself definitively on the future of his environment: “Bernardo Silva? He still has two games left this season, the FA Cup final and the Champions League final. I hope he won’t leave, but I don’t know what will happen“.

Not long ago, the former coach of FC Barcelona and FC Bayern had praised Bernardo Silva, assuring that the former Lisbon, aged 28, was a “of the best players” passed under his orders. Manchester City does not want to admit defeat in the case.
