Paris Saint-Germain is reportedly preparing a tempting offer, including a player exchange and cash, in their pursuit to sign Bernardo Silva.
The talented Portuguese midfielder has been frequently associated with a departure from Manchester City in recent times.
On the 26th of May, 2017, Manchester City officially announced the acquisition of Silva, securing his services on a five-year contract for €50 million (£43.5 million). The deal could potentially reach €70 million with additional performance-related clauses.
During his tenure at Manchester City, Silva showcased his abilities in 200 games, scoring an impressive tally of 33 goals. Additionally, on the international stage, he represented Portugal in 82 matches, contributing 11 goals. His current market value is estimated at €80 million.
Despite Manchester City’s triumphant treble-winning campaign, Silva continues to attract interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona.
According to reports from Foot Mercato, Luis Enrique’s PSG team is keen on bolstering their squad by adding Silva and is willing to part ways with certain players to make it happen.

In their proposed deal, Paris Saint-Germain is prepared to offer midfielder Marco Verratti and goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma as part of the package.
While Verratti’s inclusion would certainly intrigue Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, it is worth noting that the club recently secured the services of a similar midfielder, Mateo Kovacic.
The potential transfer involving Bernardo Silva, Paris Saint-Germain, and Barcelona highlights the dynamism of the summer transfer window and the constant maneuvering among top European clubs. Manchester City will need to carefully evaluate the offer and consider the implications for their squad, weighing the benefits of a potential player exchange against their existing midfield options.
