In order to wrest Bernardo Silva away from the Etihad Stadium, Manchester City would seek a “huge fee” from Paris Saint-Germain.
The two remaining years of the 28-year-old Treble winner’s contract with City are shrouded in mystery. A transfer to Barcelona of Spain has long been rumored.
Bernardo moved to City in 2017 from French club Monaco, and throughout his trophy-laden tenure at the Etihad Stadium, he won five Premier League championships, two FA Cups, four League Cups, and the Champions League. He later participated in more than 300 games for Pep Guardiola’s team, scoring 55 goals.
The Portuguese international scored seven goals in 55 games for the team during the just finished season, helping City win a historic Treble. However, it is still unclear at this point whether he will stay with City for the upcoming season.
While on international duty with Portugal, the midfielder said that he “doesn’t know” if he will leave City this summer or not. It continues to spark speculation about where he might wind up for the 2023–2024 season.
Fabrizio Romano, a transfer expert, claims that PSG is in talks with Bernardo’s camp about a move to the French team and that Bernardo is a “priority target.” Advanced negotiations have reportedly not begun with City, and Guardiola’s team will expect a ‘big fee’ for the player, though no precise sum is mentioned.
Nottingham Forest is reportedly interested in signing City’s Carlos Borges, according to several reports. According to ESPN, City value the 19-year-old at £11 million, although it’s unclear at this point whether the Etihad Stadium club would be prepared to let the teenager go.
