Bernardo Silva, a hard signing to peel

  • His arrival at Barça depends on there being a big sale, but Frenkie and Auba resist
  • City opens the door to the Portuguese that Xavi wants, but without discounts: he asks for 100 million

There are two weeks to go until the transfer market closes and Barça keeps the door open to new arrivals, although it must previously specify some exits in its squad. Moreover, to incorporate the main target that coach Xavi Hernández wants to round out his squad, the Portuguese midfielder Bernardo Silva , the club will need to make at least one important sale, with the names of Frenkie de Jong and/or Pierre Aubameyangin cabals by having both offers. It paints a hard operation to peel, because it implies balancing the complex interests of all the parties involved: first; that some of the Catalan players with important proposals agree to leave; second, that Barça receive an amount of money that covers its needs and, third, that it can then assume the payment of the transfer that the club that has Bernardo Silva, Manchester City , will ask for .

At the moment, none of that is happening yet. Until now, neither De Jong nor Aubameyang have changed their idea of ​​continuing to wear Barça despite the firm interest of Manchester United and Chelseaby the Dutch midfielder, and from Chelsea, by the Gabonese striker. That does not mean that this scenario will not change, because the pressure from the clubs interested in signing will increase as the market closes. Meanwhile, Bernardo Silva, without fuss or radicalism, is doing his part every day to prepare the ground for his desired departure from City to Barcelona, ​​but he does so with thanks and good words towards his club, for whatever may happen. His strategy seems intelligent: if the result of his gestures takes him to the Camp Nou, perfect, but just in case he also covers his back in case he has to continue at City.

As for the ‘citizen’ club, the position is clear. According to ‘The Athletic’, City know that Silva wants to go to Barça and they won’t close the door on him, but they don’t intend to sell him for less than the price he thinks he is worth: 100 million euros. ‘The Athletic’ underlined that there is no will to make sales. He is not going to give away a player with a high market value, no matter how much Barça is the destination and that the Etihad is full of professionals with Catalan roots, such as coach Pep Guardiola , CEO Ferran Soriano and manager Txiki Begiristain .

Still no offer to City

‘The Athletic’ confirmed that City have not yet received any formal offer for Bernardo Silva, nor any call from the player’s entourage. But be careful, Barça’s first movement with Sevilla was also long overdue for the signing of Jules Koundé and in a few hours the entire operation was unleashed.
