City to Demand Substantial Fee for Star Midfielder – Bernardo Silva

Manchester City

In the upcoming summer transfer window, Manchester City is set to demand a significant fee from Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) for their talented midfielder, Bernardo Silva. This development has been reported by reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano.

Bernardo Silva is one of two crucial midfielders who could potentially depart from the Etihad Stadium this summer. Both PSG and Barcelona have expressed interest in securing the services of these two key players under Pep Guardiola.

PSG, in particular, has reignited their pursuit of Bernardo Silva. Meanwhile, Ilkay Gundogan, another essential figure in Guardiola’s squad, has garnered attention from Barcelona and two other clubs. Gundogan’s contract with Manchester City expires at the end of the month, unless the club manages to reach a new agreement with the talented German midfielder.

During the recent treble celebrations on Monday, Jack Grealish was passionately urging Bernardo Silva to remain with the team. However, the Portugal midfielder himself has expressed uncertainty about his future destination for the next football season. In a recent interview, the 28-year-old stated, “I don’t evade questions. At this moment, I still don’t know where my future lies. I’m being honest. We’ll see what happens in the near future. Even if I did have a decision, this wouldn’t be the appropriate time or place to discuss it. The reality is that I don’t know.”

What do the reports suggest around City?

According to Fabrizio Romano, Paris Saint-Germain has already initiated discussions with Bernardo Silva’s representatives regarding a potential move to the Parc des Princes. The French champions consider the Manchester City midfielder a “priority” target and deem him “crucial” to their future plans. While personal terms have been reportedly discussed, negotiations between PSG and Manchester City are yet to progress. The newly-crowned European champions are going to demand a “huge” fee for the transfer of this five-time Premier League winner.

It is worth noting that Manchester City demanded a substantial fee from Barcelona last summer for the services of the 28-year-old midfielder. However, despite numerous rumors and reports throughout the 2022 transfer window, the Catalan club failed to secure the player’s signature.

Bernardo Silva played an instrumental role in Manchester City’s historic Champions League triumph. He contributed two goals against Real Madrid in the semi-finals and providing an assist for Rodri’s goal in the final last weekend. Since his arrival from AS Monaco in 2017, the Portuguese midfielder has won a remarkable 14 trophies with the Sky Blues. Throughout his time at Manchester City, he has made 306 appearances. In those appearances he has showcased his immense talent and contribution to the team’s success.

As the summer transfer window unfolds, the footballing world eagerly awaits the outcome of negotiations between Manchester City and PSG regarding Bernardo Silva’s future.
