Bernardo Silva to Leave Man City in the Summer and Join a La Liga Club: Reports

Bernardo Silva to exit Man City and achieve the long-desired transfer

Bernardo Silva is expected to leave Man City in the summer of 2024. The Portuguese midfielder has been linked quite often with a move to the La Liga giants FC Barcelona in the past. But this time as reported by ‘Daily Mirror’ and quoted by ‘Transfer News Live’, he looks set to achieve his long-awaited move to the Spanish club.

Silva has been one of the prominent performers for the reigning Premier League champions at the top tier of English soccer. He has also been crucial for Pep Guardiola’s plans in several other domestic and international European competitions, like the Champions League and the FA Cup. He was a crucial part of City’s treble-winning 2020-2021 season.

It would be a major blow for the Premier League side to lose a player of his quality as it won’t be easy to find an adequate replacement for him. Despite City being linked with a couple of midfield options in recent times, none of them possess that much experience and guile that Bernardo Silva has earned so far in his tenure of about seven years with the club till now.

The midfielder’s current contract with Man City darts till June 2026, however with strong reports regarding him leaving the club after the ongoing season ends, it might see him not running out actual contract period at the English club. However, nothing official has been initiated as far as his move to Barca is concerned. It remains to be seen how things turn out for the 29-year-old in the times ahead.
