Barcelona even made a specific plan to bring Bernardo Silva.
Spanish media ‘Mundo Deportivo’ reported on the 6th (Korean time), “Barcelona is ready to sign Silva this summer in the form of a loan.”
Silva is considered one of Manchester City’s key players. Since joining Man City from Monaco in 2017, he has established himself as an indispensable player for the team, scoring 55 goals and assisting 59 times in 306 games.
He is also the favorite player of Pep Guardiola. Silva’s football intelligence and versatility were exactly what Guardiola’s football was.
His performance last season was also excellent. He posted seven goals and eight assists in 55 games across all competitions. Thanks to this, Manchester City was finally able to achieve the feat of treble.
His steady performance spread to rumors of a transfer. Not only Barcelona, but also Al Hilal and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) showed serious interest in Silva’s signing this summer.
Barcelona has been showing more active moves lately. If Ousmane Dembele leaves the team, it was a plan to promote the recruitment of Silva with the proceeds of the transfer fee.
It is not enough financial power to confidently promote the recruitment of Silva. The media pointed out that “Barcelona will not have the financial power to completely recruit Silva even if it sells Dembele.”
Financial Fair Play (FFP) is also cited as a stumbling block for Barcelona. It was expected that Barcelona would give up on Silva, just as they withdrew from Lionel Messi because of FFP.
Barcelona looked for a solution. According to reports, Barcelona are planning to sign Silva on a one-year loan with a mandatory full transfer option.안전놀이터
This is also how PSG brought Kylian Mbappe. PSG brought Mbappe on loan in 2017 to avoid violating the FFP rules, and then fully signed the following year.
It is not a stage where Silva can be guaranteed. Manchester City (Man City) have no intention of selling Silva. “I will do my best to protect Silva,” Guardiola said in a press conference.
