Definitely, FC Barcelona and PSG are linked on this summer transfer window. There was of course the question of the medium-term future of Lionel Messi, whom Barça dreams of seeing return to finish his career at Camp Nou. But also the suspense around Robert Lewandowski, whom PSG would have liked to steal from the Catalan club which was struggling to get along with Bayern Munich. There is going to be a third point of friction between the two entities who love to hate each other.
As announced by Le10sport, Paris Saint-Germain want Bernardo Silva! Information that we are able to confirm to you. The 27-year-old Portuguese international is ready to leave Manchester City after 5 years in the Premier League. He has become a major player there over the seasons, even becoming the master of the game last year. He quickly seduced Barça, who would have found a total agreement with the player for a transfer according to Sport.
Bernardo Silva open to a return to France
But PSG have a few arguments in hand. First, no agreement has been reached between Barça and Manchester City, which leaves him the possibility of inserting himself into the file, the price of which should be around 80-85 million euros. The Catalan club, who have already spent a lot on this market, are waiting to sell Frenkie de Jong to take action. PSG, for its part, can rely on its new strongman, Luis Campos, the man who comes to whisper in the ear of Parisian targets.
And Campos knows Bernardo Silva well since he had attracted him to AS Monaco in 2014. In search of technical elements capable of strengthening the midfield, the football adviser made the Portuguese international, aged 27, his priority for the last weeks of the transfer window! Moreover, despite the strong interest of Barça, Bernardo Silva is not against a return to Ligue 1, thus leaving several doors open.
