Barça bound? Bernardo Silva and Pep Guardiola reach agreement over midfielder’s Man City future
Bernardo Silva and Pep Guardiola have an agreement over the midfielder’s future at Manchester City.
Mundo Deportivo claim that the Spanish coach has given his word to the player that if Barcelona make a suitable offer, he can leave.
The 27-year-old is Xavi Hernández’s priority signing if Frenkie de Jong is sold to Manchester United.
De Jong out, Silva in?
Xavi assumes that the Dutch midfielder is leaving and has made Silva his number one target.
Contact with Man City has already been made, although these discussions have been informal.
Barça are yet to make an offer for the Portuguese international.
A move is expected to be very tricky as Man City are likely to ask for a very high fee.
The €55 million fee paid for Ferran Torres back in January is likely to be referenced during negotiations.
Meanwhile, the player has made it very clear his intention to move to Camp Nou.
He has made the Catalan club well aware of his ambition to make the move.
De Jong open to Barça exit
Frenkie de Jong has privately admitted his willingness to sign for Manchester United, according to Diario Sport.
The Dutch midfielder is understood to be very disappointed at Barcelona making him available for transfer.
The 25-year-old has had doubts over the move for many weeks but he has finally made a decision to accept the switch to Old Trafford.
