Manchester City’s chairman, Khaldoon Al Mubarak, has recently spoken about how Man City are ready to make a statement in the transfer window as they look to replace the veteran Argentinian striker Sergio Aguero, who leaves for Barcelona at end of his contract.
According to the Telegraph, the Portuguese midfielder, who still has four years remaining as per his contract, has clubs all over Europe looking at him as a potential transfer target. Though it is not quite clear which clubs are interested in Bernardo Silva, it seems several top-flights clubs including Barcelona and Juventus are willing to spend what is required to bring the talented 26-year old to their club.
Bernardo Silva has enjoyed quite a fruitful spell at Man City in his four years at the club. He has contributed 45 goals in his 131 premier league games in that time while playing more than 200 games for the club in all competitions.
Despite missing out on the recent Champions League trophy to Chelsea, the midfielder has collected a formidable amount of cups and titles in his time at Eithad. These include three Premier League titles, one FA cup, four Carabao Cups and two FA Community shields.
Man City also have five other first-team players with two seasons left on their contract, including Raheem Sterling who is linked with clubs like Arsenal and Real Madrid this summer, Ilkay Gundogan and the Algerian midfielder Riyad Mahrez. Guardiola will look to renew at least some of these contracts.
With Fernandinho’s contract expiring this June, Pep Guardiola will also have to look for another player to replace the reliable Brazilian.
Whether Bernardo Silva leaves or continues to stay at the Eithad, his contribution to the club is invaluable and if he does to chose to leave the club, he can leave with his head held up high.
