‘Nonsense’ – Man City play down agreeing fee with Barcelona for Bernardo Silva


Manchester City have played down reports of agreeing on a fee to sell Bernardo Silva to Barcelona this summer.

The Portugal international has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona this summer. However, given the situation surrounding the registration of new players as well as the reluctance of Frenkie de Jong to leave, a move had looked difficult.

The Portuguese is believed to be pushing for the move and Pep Guardiola admitted last week that he does not know whether the midfielder will be at the Etihad beyond the end of the window.

There are claims in Spain that there is already an agreement over a fee between Manchester City and Barcelona for Silva’s move.

But those suggestions have been denied and the reports have been termed nonsense at the moment.

According to BBC journalist Simon Stone, Reports that Barcelona have an agreement with Man City for Bernardo Silva are “nonsense”.

Chief Manchester City writer for the Manchester Evening News, Simon Bajkowski also had this to say:

Barcelona are still to register any of this summer’s signings as they juggle their delicate financial situation.

There is still around three weeks left in the transfer window and for the moment, there are no suggestions from the Etihad that they have agreed to sell Silva.
