Manchester City could part ways with star midfielder soon this summer
Manchester City have already lost two of their star members this summer as Eric Garcia and Sergio Aguero left for Barcelona. The Sky Blues are apparently set to lose another key member this summer.
According to Duncan’s Castles, Premier League holders will soon have to bid farewell to Bernardo Silva. the last report de Castles mentioned that the Portuguese midfielder is set to leave the Etihad this summer.
Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have shown interest in the 26-year-old and are ready to sign the player in the ongoing summer window.
The former Monegasque had a great time at the Etihad as he has already won the championship twice. Last season, the attacking midfielder made 26 league appearances and managed to score twice for his club.
Currently, the Portuguese midfielder is absent at the Euro to represent his national team. The talented midfielder will be in contention to start against Hungary on Tuesday. Silva hopes to play a decisive role in this Portuguese team which already has the presence of star players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Joao Felix, Bruno Fernandes.
Currently, the Portugal international has a contract at the Etihad which will see him stay with the club until the summer of 2025.
Manchester City to lose Bernardo Silva?
There has been no official statement from the player about his intention to leave the Sky Blues this summer.
Officially, the midfielder has yet to submit a transfer request to his current employers, which means this proposed deal may not take place at this time.
However, the situation could change after the conclusion of Euro 2020. If Silva decides to leave the club this summer, then it will be difficult to prevent the player from leaving the Etihad.
Atletico Madrid have reportedly reached a swap deal for the Portuguese as they are ready to include Saul Niguez in this proposed swap. Barcelona, on the other hand, are looking to pay cash for the star midfielder’s services and will therefore have to shell out a transfer fee north of £ 60million.
