Man City transfer summary: Bernardo Silva plans to exit as Fernandinho signs new deal
Manchester City won the Premier League trophy again in the 20/21 season, but they still haven’t been able to get their hands on the one title they’ve missed – the Champions League.
The club went the furthest they have ever been in the competition, reaching the final where they faced Chelsea who beat them 1-0 thanks to a goal from Kai Havertz.
Manager Pep Guardiola is determined to lift the trophy at City and he has received full financial backing to secure the players he needs to do so next season.
The boss will also have to replace stars who have left the camp, including star striker Sergio Aguero who signed for Barcelona.
Guardiola said of Aguero’s departure: “He’s a special person. He’s so sweet. He helped me a lot… We can’t replace him, we can’t. There are a lot of players at this club – Joe Hart, David Silva [are others] – who helped us to be this club. We have his heritage. He showed his quality in 30 minutes. “
“I’m pretty sure maybe I’ll reveal a secret. Maybe he’s about to make a deal for the club of my heart – for Barcelona.
“He will play alongside the best player of all time, Lionel Messi.
“I’m pretty sure he will appreciate it. And make my club Barcelona grow stronger with him on the pitch.”

Who will City sign this summer? Comments below
Bernardo Silva plans the exit
City intend to trade Bernardo Silva for Atletico Madrid’s Joao Felix in the next transfer window.
The movement, reported by Eurosport, comes after he has been told that Silva is up for a new challenge.
The star tried to move to Barcelona at the end of last season, but the deal fell through at the last moment.
Ramos is unlikely to move to City
It came as a shock to many when Sergio Ramos left Real Madrid earlier this month and it is now rumored that he could be on his way to the Premier League to sign for City.
While many fans are speculating on where he might end up, the Manchester Evening News says his destination is unlikely to be the Sky Blues.
This means that City’s replacement of Aguero continues, with Harry Kane being another of their targets.
Fernandinho set to sign for City again
Brazilian star Fernandinho is set to sign a one-year contract extension according to the Mail.
Although he is included in a list of players to be published, it has been reported that he will remain on the Premier League side.
Guardiola keen to keep hands on the 36-year-old star who is a talisman in City’s dressing room
