According to reports, Barcelona have been interested in signing Bernardo Silva. As they seek to strengthen their attacking options, but they have been put off by his high transfer fee.
Bernardo Silva has been an important player for Manchester City since joining the club in 2017. He has contributed significantly to the team’s success, scoring important goals and providing assists in both domestic and European competitions.
there have been reports linking Bernardo Silva with a move away from Manchester City. With Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, and Real Madrid all mentioned as potential destinations. However, with Manchester City reportedly valuing the Portuguese international at around €70m (£60m), it seems that Barcelona may not be able to afford him given their current financial situation.
However, according to reports, the Catalan giants have been priced out of a move for Silva due to his high transfer fee and wage demands. Man City are believed to value the 27-year-old at around £70m. A fee that Barcelona are unable to match given their current financial situation. As a result, the Spanish club will likely have to look elsewhere for attacking reinforcements in the upcoming transfer window.
Barcelona unable to meet City’s demands for Bernardo Silva
Man City are demanding a transfer fee of around €70m (£59.5m) for Silva, which is more than what Barcelona are willing to pay. The Catalan club is currently going through a difficult financial situation. And it seems that they are not prepared to spend such a large amount on a single player. As a result, Barcelona may have to look elsewhere for midfield reinforcements.
It remains to see whether Barcelona will be able to negotiate a deal for Silva. But if they are unable to meet Man City’s demands, they may have to look at alternative options to strengthen their squad. Xavi has been vocal about his desire to bolster the attacking options at Barcelona. Hence, the club could turn their attention to other targets in the transfer market.
It is worth noting that Gundogan has been a key player for Man City this season. If he does decide to leave, there is likely to be a lot of interest from other clubs as well. Nonetheless, given Barcelona’s current financial situation, a free transfer would certainly be an attractive option for the Catalan giants. Gundogan might be the one to replace Busquets in Barcelona.
