Barcelona linked with fresh move for Bernardo Silva

It’s been a transfer window full of surprises, and Barcelona could be set to carry on this trend.

According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Barcelona are linked with fresh move for Bernardo Silva.

The 27-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.

Silva has been at Manchester City since 2017 when he joined from Monaco. The 27-year-old’s contract is set to expire at the end of the 2024/25 campaign.

In 50 appearances last season, Bernardo Silva has managed to score 13 goals and contributed with seven assists.

The 27-year-old is considered to be one of the best football players in Portugal. His record for Portugal is also impressive. Silva has scored 8 goals in 70 matches for Portugal at senior level.

The Portugal international is believed to be available for transfer, with Xavi now keen to bring him to Barcelona.

Xavi is keen to secure at least one more signing this summer, and Silva could very well be a man under consideration.

The La Liga giants are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.

The former Monaco midfielder is a traditional number ten who will add creativity and technique in the final third for Xavi’s side. He can play multiple positions in attack.

According to the report, “Manchester City have offered Bernardo Silva to Barcelona for £67million. That’s despite issuing a hands-off warning to the Spanish giants just 10 days ago. Bernardo, 27, was strongly linked with a City exit last summer. And despite being one of their best players, the Portugal international continues to be tipped for a move. Paris Saint-Germain are thought to be interested. Just 10 days ago, reports claimed City had told their European rivals there was no chance of Silva leaving the Etihad. However, L’Equipe claims the Premier League champions have now offered Silva to Barcelona themselves. But Barcelona have made no secret of their desire to make Silva their next statement signing.”

If Barcelona can agree on a fee with Manchester City, the deal should be easy to complete.

Bernardo Silva ideal fit for Barcelona?

If Barcelona and Xavi are seriously considering a winger, Silva could also prove to be a smart option.

Bernardo Silva will be an ideal choice for Xavi as he ticks all the right boxes in terms of what he demands from his attackers.

Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Barcelona.

How strong that interest is and whether Barcelona will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
