One of the many targets in this market for Barcelona is Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva. The Citizens footballer received the approval of coach Xavi Hernandez and the managers set to work to sign him, even though the 27-year-old’s card is valued at a full 80 million euros.
However, despite the desire of the Portuguese himself to wear the Blaugrana jersey, the one who put the “veto” in this case was coach Pep Guardiola. The Spanish technician has not even considered the offer from his former club, as he considers the fantasist as one of the most important elements of the team for the new season.
Bernardo Silva has a contract with City until 2025, while in his last year at the Etihad Stadium he made a total of 50 appearances, scoring 13 goals and providing seven assists in all competitions.
