Barça is about to lose Ousmane Dembélé, who will go to PSG. The Catalans are unwilling to let themselves down and are targeting Bernardo Silva as a replacement for the France international.
In Barcelona, the rumble begins to be felt. Ousmane Dembélé’s next departure was not planned and therefore came as a surprise. But the Catalans need cash. Barça will have to replace the 2018 world champion. And the least we can say is that Xavi’s training is heavy. Indeed, the Spanish champions have their sights set on Bernardo Silva. The Portuguese has been keen on leaving Manchester City for a few weeks now. If we thought he would end up at PSG, the former Monaco would rather appreciate an arrival in Spain. But the file promises to be complex for Barça and its finances …
Barca still have hope
According to information from Sports world, Barça can believe in the arrival of Bernardo Silva. But for this, specific conditions must be met. The media indicates that the Portuguese will have to explicitly ask for his departure from Pep Guardiola and Manchester City agree to let go of the player as part of a loan with an obligatory purchase option. A formula that suits Barça, which cannot put the more than 80 million euros requested by the Skyblues. Also, the European champions could see an interest in it, because they could benefit from a nice sum at the end of next season even if there are currently only two years of contract left for the former Monaco. If City refuse, Barca will have to attempt a direct transfer in the coming days. But further sales are set to take place, as Bernardo Silva is reportedly among the club’s biggest earners along with Robert Lewandowski and Frenkie De Jong. The ball is in Manchester City’s court, which has already lost Ilkay Gundogan and Riyad Mahrez during this summer transfer window.
