Bernardo Silva is ‘very attracted’ by the idea of playing for Barcelona, Mundo Deportivo’s credible Ferran Martinez (5 stars) reports. In fact, we are the only club he would leave Manchester City for.
The midfielder’s agent, Jorge Mendes, has explained to him that he might have to wait until late August to join the Catalans. The 27-year-old understands that his transfer depends on Frenkie de Jong leaving, and he is willing to wait even until the last day of the transfer market.
The parties have already discussed personal terms and it won’t be difficult for Barca to find an agreement with the player.
Man City meanwhile, are ready to sell Bernardo for €80m plus add-ons. As long as the price tag is met, they will not impede the move.
