Manchester City Bernardo Silva

There have been rumors that Bernardo Silva could leave Manchester City this season.

Moreover, there has been interest from clubs like PSG and Barcelona. However, Pep Guardiola will in no way sell the Portuguese and Silva even voiced his wish for staying at City.

City has already sold off Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling this season. Therefore, City are in no position to offload Silva.

Moreover, former Burnley goalkeeper has also projected that the 27-year-old will stay on at the Etihad.

Also, he believes that Silva possesses too much ‘quality’ that could be sold by the City authorities.

Manchester City can in no way let Bernardo Silva go away

Robinson in an interview with Football Insider:

“Bernardo Silva has built up a relationship with the club and the supporters. He has been one of the Premier League’s best players over a number of years now. The quality he brings on and off the field cannot be underestimated. Pep is not going to want to lose him easily.

Silva doesn’t speak very often but when he does he speaks a lot of sense. He speaks with integrity. I think he is a player and a character who never create a problem. I cannot see him leaving Man City. There has been talk of Barcelona and PSG, but I cannot see him leaving.

Unless the player demands to leave, I cannot see it. Pep wouldn’t want to lose him.”

Silva came to City in 2017 from Monaco. After arriving at the Etihad, he has played 249 matches for the Citizens.

During that tenure, he scored 48 goals and provided 50 assists.

He directly contributed to 20 goals from 50 appearances that he made for the club across all competitions.

He is a very key player for Guardiola.

There has been widespread criticism over the selling of Jesus and Sterling this summer.

Therefore, City can in no way let Silva leave who still has three years on his contract.
