Manchester City have agreed a deal to sell Bernardo Silva to Barcelona

According to a Spanish journalist, Manchester City has agreed to sell Bernardo Silva to Barcelona. The future of City’s Portuguese midfielder Bernardo is quickly becoming the summer transfer saga, with Bernardo yet to publicly commit his future to City despite weeks of reports linking him with a move. According to Spanish journalist Gerard Romero, the two clubs have agreed on a fee of between €50m and €55m (approximately £42m – £46.5m). Pep Guardiola admitted last week that he does not know whether Bernardo will stay at City and reiterated his stance that players can leave the club if they receive a suitable offer. Pep Guardiola may have hinted at a new first-choice Manchester City player following a hidden West Ham role. Barcelona has been interested in signing Bernardo for three summers in a row, but their current financial situation may complicate their efforts to sign the midfielder this summer. Barcelona will be unable to register their new signings, including Robert Lewandowski and Jules Kounde, until they increase their income after LaLiga rejected an attempt to use the club’s own funds to inflate the value of asset sales they had resorted to in order to balance the books on Monday evening. Bernardo is understood to be relatively happy and settled in Manchester after asking to leave City in both the summers of 2020 and 2021, but he reportedly still has ambitions to play at the Camp Nou. The 27-year-old came off the bench in City’s first league game of the season. In other news, Portuguese newspaper A Bola (via Sport Witness) suggests that City could turn to Sporting CP’s Matheus Nunes to fill any Bernardo-shaped void. The highly rated 23-year-old can play anywhere in central midfield, as he did in February when City faced Sporting in Lisbon. A slew of European clubs are interested in signing him, including Wolverhampton Wanderers, who had an offer of around €40 million accepted. Nunes, on the other hand, turned them down, preferring to join a Champions League club with title ambitions. Liverpool have also been linked with the Portugal international, but City may have a greater need in that position if Bernardo goes to Barcelona.
