Barcelona is already preparing preliminary plans for the summer transfer period in 2023. According to journalists from “Mundo Deportivo”, the club’s priority will be to bring in Bernardo Silva.
Back in the summer, the Manchester City midfielder was linked with ‘Catalan Pride’. And the media confirmed that Xavi Hernandez is in favor of the 28-year-old’s transfer.
In the end, Barcelona failed to buy a Portuguese international. But Camp Nou officials did not abandon their plans for this player.
Mundo Deportivo indicates that the transfer of Bernardo will be a priority for Barcelona next year. The club will look to strengthen their midfield, and the Portuguese is an ideal candidate in Catalonia.
Possible transportation will certainly be very expensive. Portal “Transfermarkt” Silva is estimated at 80 million euros.
Manchester City also do not have to rush into a sale, as the midfielder’s contract is valid for another three years. But Barcelona is counting on the fact that the footballer himself will express his desire to leave the federation, which will help in negotiations with the champions of England.
This season, Silva played in ten matches for the team led by Pep Guardiola. He scored two goals and three assists.
