What if Bernardo Silva left Manchester City this summer? What seemed incongruous given the importance of the Portuguese international in the device of Pep Guardiola could well become a reality. And it was Guardiola himself who said so. In a press conference two days before starting the season against West Ham on Sunday at 5:30 p.m., the Spanish coach confirmed that he did not know what the future of his 27-year-old player would be.
“For many reasons we sometimes have to go our separate ways, especially because of the player’s desire – that’s the most important thing. I want people to be happy to be here. Of course, I wish Bernardo could continue here. He is a very special player in the dressing room and for me. But honestly, I don’t know what will happen. It will happen what will happen. If he stays, it’s perfect, but if he has to leave, football is like that.”he launched.
No offer yet
Guardiola has already lost Zinchenko, Sterling and Gabriel Jesus this summer, but has welcomed Erling Haaland and Kalvin Phillips among others. The departure of Bernardo Silva would be a real blow, as the Portuguese is a Swiss army knife for Guardiola. But beware, Guardiola also explained that there was no attack on his player yet.
“We didn’t receive any offers, last season either. Bernardo is ready, he is training very well for Sunday and that’s it. » We recall that two clubs seem to be fighting over the signing of the former Monegasque. There is FC Barcelona, which must first cut back and hopes to sell De Jong to finance the Bernardo Silva file. And as we revealed to you, there is PSG, with Luis Campos in attack and already in contact with the player. So wait and see.
