Bernardo Silva confided on his possible departure, recalling in passing the philosophy of his coach, Pep Guardiola, facing the mercato. “Manchester City is a big club and they do not want players who are not happy. They always tell us that if you are not happy, you can leave.”
The transfer of the former Monegasque should be concluded around 60 million euros according to Gerard Romero. A prestigious signing could be followed by that of a fullback, another Catalan priority on the market.
