Barcelona offers EIGHT players to Man City in pursuit of first-team player.

The agents of Manchester City Bernardo Silva are applying a ‘promise’ made by Pep Guardiola last summer to achieve a departure for their client this summer, according to the latest information.

The feeling in several quarters over the past few days is that the Portugal international almost unquestionably wants out of the club, and this seems to have been the case for some while now too.

This has almost surely come as a shock to many Manchester City supporters since talk of a departure first surfaced, mainly due to the performances of the player last season showing now signs of unhappiness or discontent – which is perhaps proof of Bernardo Silva’s professionalism.

Nonetheless, the player wants out, and the latest talk from English press is that Barcelona have understood Manchester City’s valuation and have also tabled several players to possibly include in a settlement and drive down the original transfer fee.

According to the report of Duncan Castles, while speaking on the latest edition of the Transfer Window podcast, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola guaranteed Bernardo Silva that if you the Portugal international gave him another season, the player would be allowed a move in what is now the current summer window.


It is this promise that Castles exacts Bernardo Silva’s representatives are using as leverage in securing a move away from the Etihad Stadium in the coming weeks/months.

Regarding the reasons behind Bernardo Silva’s wish to leave Manchester, and argumentation that aligns itself with various other reports in recent days, Duncan Castles states that while the player is not unhappy with Manchester City as a team, he has had enough of English football and doesn’t enjoy living in the north-west as a climate.

To a degree, it is stated, Bernardo Silva has had his time in Manchester, explored the city – as publicized on Instagram on various incidents – and wants somewhere to live and another league to play in.

On the subject of La Liga titans Barcelona, there is interest certainly, and Duncan Castles goes as far as to say that Ronald Koeman’s side have made an ‘informal proposal’ to the player.

For Manchester City, they feel that Bernardo Silva’s price has increased from €50 million. The latest information is that the exemplary scenario for Txiki Begiristain and co is securing a ‘large cash offer’ from Barcelona or Atletico Madrid, and using those funds in their hunt of Jack Grealish and a new center-forward.

Such is the former’s wish to sign Silva that Castles states they have put forward eight players for Manchester City to pick from in a part-swap: Sergi Roberto, Ousmane Dembele, Jordi Alba, Coutinho, Clement Lenglet, Trincao, Sergio Busquets, and Pique.

This news will assuredly not be taken well by Manchester City fans, as Bernardo Silva has proved himself as a firm fan favorite since his arrival four years ago, and has been a huge achievement on the field.

However, the club seems to have their perfect replacement in mind, and very little would complain at the prospect of Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish starting alongside the likes of Kevin de Bruyne and Phil Foden from next season.
