Report: Barcelona are preparing an official offer for Bernardo Silva


Spanish media believe there is still a chance Barcelona could sign Bernardo Silva before the deadline, and the Catalan club are reportedly preparing an official offer for the midfielder.

Manchester City are unlikely to allow him to leave before the window closes without time to sign a replacement, but Barcelona are willing to try.

Bernardo Silva dreams of Barcelona according to Fabrice Romano, but would not force a Manchester City move.

According Gerard Romero Going through Manage Barça, Barcelona are preparing an official offer for Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva as the deadline approaches.

Manchester City confirmed the player would stay last week, with Pep Guardiola clearly in his press conference.

Fabrizio Romano also made it clear last night that the player is happy to stay and won’t force any moves under any conditions.

Manchester City had Lucas Paqueta named as a substitute, but the player has since joined West Ham United. Any deal that sees Bernardo Silva leave Manchester City at this stage of the window would have to be absolutely gigantic.

Thoughts from the authors

There is no way Manchester City will sanction any move for Bernardo Silva at this stage of the window. He is too big a player to lose without having a substitute lined up first.

Reports from Spain have suggested all along that a deal could be done, but Barcelona don’t have enough funds to sign Bernardo Silva without Frankie De Jong leave the club.
