Despite the fact that in Can Barça there is optimism regarding the arrival of Bernardo, from Manchester they have been in charge of giving them a 'bucket' of cold water. According to 'SPORT', the 'citizens' maintain that there is no type of negotiation for the Portuguese
The uncertainty around the figure of Bernardo Silva and his future does not do more than growing. The Portuguese is the main aim of the FC Barcelona for what remains of summer since Xavi Hernández considers that it is the final piece to complete his project. Thus, from the dispatches of the Camp Nou are doing all the possible for finding the way to tackle the signing of the player, since when being one of the figures of the Manchester City will not be a simple operation.
In the first place, the figure that expect to perceive in the Etihad Stadium rondaría the 80 million euros, numbers to which the Barça, to day of today, only could access to concretise the sale of Frenkie of Jong. Nevertheless, the Dutch has refused categorically the opportunity to abandon the changing rooms of the Camp Nou, and although the culés already have pactado his traspaso with the Manchester United, the refusal of the ex of the Ajax has supposed a big problem for the planning of the culés.
Now, a new setback would have appeared in the Catalan horizon. And it is that as it has informed the newspaper 'SPORT', from Manchester have manifested that it does not exist any type of negotiation with the blaugranas by the luso, ensuring even that they do not handle any offer of the entity culé. In spite of that Guardiola has the politics to leave go out to the footballers that do not want to follow under his orders, the square 'skyblue' will not put the easy things to the barcelonistas for fichar to Silva.
The group mancuniano sustains that there has not been neither an alone conversation with the Barcelona institution, clearing besides that these have not communicated him his interest in the midfield player. Of the same way, the current champions of the Premier League explain that Jorge Mendes, representative of the Portuguese, neither has received any called from the City Condal, enfríando like this all the rumours that approached increasingly to Bernardo to Barcelona.
The Barça, to 'time trial'
Besides, in Manchester do not pretend 'pull' by long the situation of the mediocentro. With the season already in movement, the square of Pep considers that the 'serial' can not demorarse in excess, by what each day that pass represents an opportunity less so that these leave to go out to Bernardo Silva. And it is that the lisboeta is one of the most important players of the team, by what achieve to the ideal substitute with little timeframe will not be simple task for the entity.
By his part, the participation of the '20' mancuniano in the operation will be key so that this arrive to good port. The Portuguese is conscious that the City has the for this campaign when being one of the most stood out footballers of the plantel, by what once the Barça launch his offensive final, east will have to put of his part to achieve the traspaso. Silva dreams with playing in the Camp Nou and has left 'tracks' on the way in the last days, but to the hour of the 'truth' will have to take a step forward and expose him his wish so much to Guardiola as to Txiki Begiristain. The time runs against of the culés.
