A priority target for FC Barcelona, Manchester City attacking midfielder Bernardo Silva is also of interest to Paris Saint-Germain. Are we heading for a new battle between the two best enemies?
City, the Portuguese has become one of the best players in the world.
Pivotal moment in the career of Bernardo Silva. After Benfica, the training club, Monaco, the springboard club, the attacking midfielder wishes to leave Manchester City, the club where he became one of the best players in the world in five years of excellent and loyal service.
27 years old, the age of maturity, the Portuguese must make a decision. With two clubs in the race to offer his talent: Barcelona, with whom he has already agreed on a contractual level, and Paris Saint-Germain!
Bara must sell De Jong first
After the recruitment of Vitinha and that expected of Renato Sanches, we do not necessarily see the club of the capital positioning itself on a new midfielder, as offensive as it is, but our colleagues from Foot Mercato are formal: Paris wants to grill the courtesy to the Catalans! And for good reason, since the latter have still not managed to reach an agreement with City, and will in any case have to sell Frenkie de Jong before hoping to recruit the former Mongasque.
PSG must also cut back, but nevertheless seem able to put on the table the 80 to 85 million euros expected by the Skyblues. The reigning French champions therefore do not leave beaten, even if nothing seems to resist Bara in this transfer window: Chelsea – beaten in the Raphinha and Jules Kound files – has experienced it. PSG, which has a time considering the idea of recruiter Robert Lewandowski, also. But Bernardo Silva’s situation is different. First of all, Paris has an asset that Barcelona does not have: Luis Campos, the new sports adviser, who had attracted his Monegasque compatriot in 2014. And above all, still according to FM, the Portuguese is not against a return to Ligue 1while the Polish striker had quickly made things clear: it would be the Bara or nothing.
Bernardo Silva to make a choice, therefore. Barcelona, its place is already reserved in the 4-3-3 of Xavi, right of the triangle composed of Pedri and the sentry Sergio Busquets. Paris, the equation seems more complex solved. In Christophe Galtier’s 3-4-1-2, his profile does not really correspond to the two places in the middle. For the role of number 10, hunting guard: Lionel Messi shone this position during the preparation, and is not one to share.
obviously, nothing says that Paris will actually take action. The transfer window is not an exact science, and the bluff remains king. We must therefore not exclude that this new rumor comes from the player’s clan, or even from Manchester City to push Bara to activate. It’s also likely to be true, for one simple and good reason: who wouldn’t want a player of Bernardo Silva’s class in their squad? Nobody.
Where do you think Bernardo Silva will be transferred this summer? Feel free to react and beat in the area add a comment…
