What if Bernardo Silva stayed Manchester City? In the Daily Mail, the reigning Premier League champion has denied any agreement with FC Barcelona regarding the transfer of the attacking midfielder. The Skyblues want to keep him, despite his desires elsewhere.
Bernardo Silva still has three years on his City contract.
FC Barcelona continues to ignite this summer transfer window, with soap operas worthy of Hollywood.
There was the Robert Lewandowski episode, first retained by Bayern Munich, the Raphinha episode, courted by Chelsea, the Jules Kound episode, also very close to the Blues, the Ousmane Dembl episode, which ended with the extension of the French, and places the Bernardo Silva episode. Because after having reached an agreement with the Portuguese international, the Blaugrana would have done the same with his management.
Bara still cannot register its recruits
The information, signed by journalist Gerard Romero, reported on Tuesday of a transfer estimated between 50 and 55 million euros. Enough to ignite the blaugrana supporters, our colleague – very well informed about the Catalan club – being the first to have announced an agreement between Bara and Sville for Jules Kound. A reliable source, therefore, but obviously surprising news as the vice-champions of Spain – facing financial problems – still cannot register their recruits in La Liga…
Le Bara, who still needs 30 to 40 million euros in additional income to meet Spanish wage rules, can he really afford to drop double on the former Mongasque, under contract until 2025? Probably not, and the information from our colleague may have been whispered in his ear by the Catalan management, just to put pressure on City. But the unfazed reigning Premier League champions quickly denied the news to the Daily Mail.
City want to keep Bernardo Silva
With a strong announcement: City wants to keep Bernardo Silva! Despite the 28-year-old Portuguese’s desire to leave for Spain, who wants to be closer to his family, the Citizens are aware that it will be very difficult to find a player of the caliber of the former Mongasque before the end of the transfer window. Also according to the Daily Mail, Pep Guardiola’s team will not let go of their left-hander in any case for less than 80 million pounds sterling, or around 94.5 million euros.
A sum obviously out of reach for Bara, which still has to sell assets or players, or even lower certain salaries, to be able to start the Spanish championship this weekend with its recruits. But watch out, because Blaugrana president Joan Laporta has proven he can find money at any time to meet the needs of his coach Xavi. We must therefore not yet completely exclude a transfer of Bernardo Silva to Catalonia… D-22 before the end of the transfer window.
