According to reports, Bernardo Silva, a playmaker for Manchester City, would try his best to secure a deal to Barcelona during the summer transfer window.
A recent article published in the Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo suggests that Barcelona’s expectations over their ability to acquire Bernardo Silva during the summer transfer window have increased. The Portuguese playmaker has requested that Manchester City consider what the Catalan giants have to offer if they want to complete a transfer to Camp Nou.
After having an outstanding 2021/22 season with Manchester City, during which he was a talismanic figure for the club, Bernado Silva has successfully turned around his career. The 27-year-old player had been an important part of Pep Guardiola’s team up to the beginning of the previous season, but he elevated his play to the next level this year.
The Portuguese international made 50 total appearances for Manchester City, with 13 goals and seven assists across all competitions. He was an essential cog in Manchester City’s successful defence of their Premier League title. Despite this, Silva is willing to leave Manchester City during the summer transfer window to pursue an opportunity with Barcelona.
In light of the increasing unpredictability surrounding Frenkie de Jong’s long-term status, Barcelona will almost certainly invest in a creative midfielder. The “economic levers” that have been activated may help the Catalan giants’ financial woes a little bit, but it is still too early to say whether or not they will be able to pull themselves totally out of this mess.
The salary demands of the Dutch midfielder are a burden for Barcelona, and the club may decide to cash in on his services this summer. The playmaker for Manchester City, Bernardo Silva, is apparently waiting for the Blaugrana to inquire about him. This has resulted in Barcelona being interested in pursuing him as a potential transfer target.
However, the current holders of the Premier League title are unwilling to part ways with Silva, even though Guardiola has often said that the club would not prevent a player from leaving if they express a desire to do so. On the other hand, Silva is actively pursuing a move to Barcelona during the summer transfer window and has requested that Manchester City consider the propositions put up by the Catalan giants.
Given that de Jong’s future remains uncertain, Barcelona may shortly begin an aggressive pursuit of Silva. It is interesting to note that recent rumours have suggested that de Jong is more likely to join Manchester City during the summer transfer window. As a result, it may not be strange to see the Dutchman switch positions with Silva in the coming weeks.
