Desiring to discover a new challenge, Bernardo Silva is reportedly being requested by Kylian Mbappé to join PSG, and the Parisian club may believe in their chances.
While PSG executives are already working behind the scenes to keep Mbappé for next season, the French striker would like to see his former AS Monaco teammate, Bernardo Silva, join the team. Despite being under contract with Manchester City until June 2025, the 28-year-old attacking midfielder has already expressed his desire to join a new project. Therefore, the Cityzens could agree to put him on the market next summer.
However, the French champions are not the only ones interested in Silva, as FC Barcelona would also reportedly dream of signing the Cristiano Ronaldo compatriot. According to information gathered by the Catalan media outlet Sport, the Portuguese international is part of Xavi’s priorities for the next recruitment of the Blaugranas. And the interest is mutual, as Bernardo Silva would reportedly choose the Barcelona destination as a priority in case of a departure from England. But the deal is still far from being done for the current La Liga leaders.
PSG Mercato: Bernardo Silva out of reach for Barça?
After shining again in the colors of AS Monaco, including winning the Ligue 1 title in 2017, Kylian Mbappé and Bernardo Silva could be reunited at Paris Saint-Germain. While the former is pushing to convince his friend to join him at Camp des Loges, the protected of Pep Guardiola would prefer to go to Barcelona. However, the financial leeway of the Catalan club would be “almost zero,” according to the newspaper Sport.
To carry out an operation like that of Bernardo Silva, the club of President Joan Laporta will first have to make big sales or significantly reduce its wage bill. This situation could make PSG the most likely destination for the former prodigy of Benfica Lisbon in a few months.
