Manchester City player has told Pep Guardiola he wants Barcelona move



Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva has informed Pep Guardiola he wants a move to FC Barcelona, it has been reported.

The 27-year-old has been on Man City’s books since 2017 when he joined from AS Monaco.

Since then, Silva has played a key role in Manchester City dominating the English game, especially in 2018/19 when the Portuguese was arguably in the best form of his career as City notched a century of points in the Premier League.

However, even though Man City have continued to be the pinnacle of English football, Silva did look to be eyeing an exit this past summer.

No exit was forthcoming for Silva, though, and he went on to impress across the course of the 2021/22 campaign.

However, with the summer transfer window now open, Silva’s future has once again been called into question.

FC Barcelona have been linked recently, though Pep Guardiola at the time did seem keen to play down the likelihood of such a move transpiring:

“They will have a difficult time...,” he said of Barcelona’s interest in Silva.

Now, however, it appears Barcelona have been handed some help in trying to land Silva via the player himself.

According to Spanish outlet Sport, Silva wants a move to Barcelona, and he has already met with Pep Guardiola to communicate his desire.

Barcelona are said to have been informed, but the Spanish powerhouse know a deal is going to be very hard for them to pull off due to their complex financial situation.
