Ruben Dias has provided an honest perspective on how close Bernardo Silva came to leaving Manchester City last season and in previous seasons.

Silva has been considering leaving the Etihad Stadium for quite some time, with his desire for a more familiar culture and better weather being cited as reasons for his potential exit.

Interest from clubs like Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona has been swirling around Silva, with rumors even suggesting a return to SL Benfica.

However, his preferred destination has been Barcelona, but their financial constraints have prevented any serious offers, leading Manchester City to renew his contract last summer.

In a recent interview with The National, Ruben Dias mentioned that Silva’s desire to leave Manchester City has been a recurring theme, but each time it ends in favor of the Etihad side.

He expressed his happiness when Silva signed a new contract and emphasized the importance of having a player like him to win trophies.

Dias also praised Silva’s contributions and talents, highlighting his intelligence, adaptability, and ability to support the team in difficult moments. He emphasized the impact Silva has in the dressing room and his underrated status as a player.

Currently, Silva is focused on delivering his best performances for Manchester City as they aim for an unprecedented ‘double treble’ following their success last season.

The team faces tough Premier League fixtures, an FA Cup fifth-round tie against Luton Town, and the UEFA Champions League campaign, where Silva contributed to City’s scoring against Copenhagen in the first leg.

Overall, Ruben Dias’ insights into Bernardo Silva’s potential departure and his value to Manchester City shed light on the player’s significance and the team’s ambitions for the future.
