Bernardo Silva has popped up on the radar of Liverpool over a potential move in the summer transfer window. The Man City playmaker is also a target for Barcelona and PSG, with the Blaugrana his preferred destination. Portugal international is at a crossroads in his career after arguably his best-ever campaign in club football.
Silva was pivotal for Man City when they successfully defended their PL title in the 2021/22 campaign. But Bernardo wants to embark on a new adventure in the ongoing transfer window.
While Man City initially refused to let the 27-year-old attacker leave this summer, Pep Guardiola recently admitted that the footballer could depart from the Etihad Stadium in the ongoing transfer window. And the Portuguese star’s situation has not gone unnoticed, with Barcelona, PSG, and Liverpool setting their sights on the playmaker.
Barcelona’s interest in the Portuguese is well-documented, and the latest reports claim they have initiated contact with Man City for him. The latest European bigwigs to be linked with the former Monaco attacker are the Merseyside giants.
Liverpool have an ageing midfield unit, with Milner, Henderson, and Thiago in their thirties. But while Bernardo is an option worth considering for the Reds, the rumour makes no sense. Liverpool and Man City will never exchange pivotal figures, considering they are PL title rivals.
So Barcelona and PSG should be the front-runners in the race to sign Bernardo Silva, who will hope to depart from the Etihad Stadium in the ongoing transfer window.
