Manchester City make decision on potential transfer deal with Barcelona

Posted by

Manchester City have reportedly decided they will not be selling Bernardo Silva to Barcelona this summer.

The Portugal international has been a key player for Pep Guardiola side down the years, but there was surprise talk of him possibly moving to the Nou Camp.

Now, however, it seems that Man City have decided they have no intention of sanctioning a deal, according to a report from the Daily Mirror.

City fans will surely be breathing a sigh of relief at this news, as the club have already let some top players leave this summer, with Gabriel Jesus joining Arsenal and Raheem Sterling moving to Chelsea.

Fernandinho’s contract also came to an end, while Fabrizio Romano has provided an update on Oleksandr Zinchenko’s potential move to Arsenal on his exclusive CaughtOffside Substack column.

City have strengthened well, but they surely shouldn’t lose a key player like Silva, who will surely be key to getting the best out of new signings Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez.

Barcelona have also just signed Raphinha and Robert Lewandowski, so there is surely less room for an attacking player like Silva in Xavi’s squad anyway.

  1. Why standing in his way,while pep guardiola repeatedly said he won’t keep unhappy player

    1. He isn’t standing in his way.The price is €100m,which is a snip.Even so,the spanish crooks want to pay a lot less,doesn’t work like that any more,stump up or shut up

  2. City were prepared to sanction a move to Barca but at a price dictated by them.
    Barca cannot pay the price because of their historic poor governance and debt.
    City and Bernardo have a contract and both will honour it.
    The position with Jesus and Sterling was different as they had moved into the final year of their current contract so it suited City to sanction the move when the buying clubs met an negotiated price accepted to both the seller and the buyer.

    Seemples – not quantum physics. 🙂

  3. three different exclusives from three ‘close’ sources. 1) his wife unhappy in Manchester so he wants to go- understanable
    2) If frankie de jong goes to man united then there is agreement in principle that silva goes to barca – possible
    3) this story where club doesnt have to sell and doesnt want to- logical
    my opinion- if the money is right he will force a move, pep wint keep an unhappy player and season gone he had injuries and wasnt as clinical as previous.
