On the future of Bernardo Silva

The various media in Europe do not stop dealing with the future of Bernardo Silva, especially after his wonderful double against Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the Champions League, and in the shadow of the rumors about his possible move to Paris Saint-Germain. In France they say that the group from the City of Lights is his preferred destination.

The Portuguese has a contract for two more years at the Etihad, when he may move for between 50 and 70 million euros. Paris’ sporting advisor Luis Campos signed him during the two’s time together in Monaco. Bernardo himself referred to his future after Real when he said: “I want to finish the season well and win all the titles, after that we’ll see what happens in the summer.”

“The 28-year-old Portuguese has become a very important and unquestionable part of Pep Guardiola’s lineup, and if he continues to demonstrate his wonderful ability as he has demonstrated this season, Manchester City will probably think twice about letting him go,” the French media promise.

The one who also expressed his opinion on the matter is former player and French commentator Jerome Rotten, who said: “Bernardo will be a piece of shit if he comes to Paris just for money and quality of life. I am sure PSG will sign him because he is a star. He plays for his friends, he has a finish and he is intelligent, this is the player who best shows what Pep Guardiola wants his team to see on the pitch.”

The Frenchman added: “Bernardo has everything, he has class. The president of Paris does not need to worry about building a team, he decided to sign names, he likes Bernardo Silva, especially after the game on Wednesday, and money is not their problem. They don’t want Silva for team building.”

Bernardo wanted to leave City already last summer, but Barcelona failed to sign him after the contents set an impossible price tag. Now, “it seems obvious that the star will part with the Etihad even though he holds a contract, because he and his partner do not really like life in Manchester and the gray British weather”, claims in Spain.

The Portuguese has at least another 4-5 years at the highest levels, and Lakip believe he is PSG’s No. 1 summer target, as Leo Messi’s replacement. Before he says goodbye, he wants to win the Champions League with City in Istanbul.

In ‘Sport’ they published how Bernardo convinced PSG to go for him, when they emphasized that in the pair of games against Real he revealed his repertoire and showed strength, quality and speed in attack and defense, when he was also excellent against Bayern Munich. Against the Blancos, he won the MVP and Guardiola stated about him a few months ago: “This is one of the best players I have coached.”
