Barcelona have been negotiating with City for a long time about the arrival of Bernardo Silva to their club, and the complications surrounding his signing exist only on their side.
The Catalan club have wanted Silva since last season, and after the arrival of Christiansen, Kessie, Lewandowski, Marcos Alonso and Conde, the Portuguese midfielder has captured all the attention of Xavi Hernandez. The transfer that was planned for last summer could not be carried out because it was not economically profitable.
The main winner of the failed transfer was Manchester City, who beat Inter in the Champions League final with Silva as captain of that team.
This story continues this year, albeit with much less fanfare, but now the chances of him wearing the Barcelona shirt are increasing. A new problem is the offer of Paris Saint-Germain, who offered Silva one hundred million euros, which is an absolutely unattainable figure that the blue-reds would reach in order to win him over to their side.
Apart from the club from Paris, it is also speculated that Al Hilal is interested in Bernardo and that he could probably offer more money than Paris Saint-Germain.
Manchester City and Guardiola are aware that Silva wants to leave and that he is particularly attracted to Barcelona, but they are ready to do everything to keep him at their club.
Bernardo Silva captained Manchester City when that team won the Champions League title, so they are offering him a contract extension until 2027 to continue their fantastic run together in the Premier League and European competitions.
