Manchester City's number 20 has impressed during his time in the Premier league and would be a huge miss to Pep Guardiola's side, he has regularly chipped in with derby day goals and big performances when it has mattered, he could be a huge asset to many teams.
More news started speculating around Bernardo Silva's future when he failed to turn up to training with the other Portuguese players (he is likely to be returning Monday with England players), it was thought he was given some extra holiday due to his dislike of the Manchester area. Bernardo has been linked since last summer with a transfer to Catalonian giants Barcelona a move to the Nou Camp is currently unlikely regarding Barca's present economical state.
According to sources close to the Portugal international his representatives he been reportedly trying to drum up interest in the player, clubs such as Athletico Madrid have been keeping tabs on midfielder with Saul set for a move away, it is for now just interest but this may evolve further. Arsenal have also thrown their hat into the ring with their search of a playmaker on going yet a move to an English rival is unlikely.
There is also a thought that due to his Portuguese relations he may be willing to take part in a swap deal for Harry Kane, seeing Bernardo moving to North London. Although this is unlikely various Portuguese sources have named this a possibility. Man City are looking for a fee in the region of €60m for the player to help fund moves for other target such as Harry Kane and Jack Grealish. Bernardo's priority is a move to Spain, with Athletico and Barca favourites to land the Man City man.
