Bernardo Silva has become one of the objectives of FC Barcelona in case Frenkie de Jong leaves. It is a fairly complicated operation because Manchester City has put a prohibitive sale price on it
"If they want to it they go it to have difficult" said Pep Guardiola does some days on the rumours that the FC Barcelona was interested in doing with the services of Bernardo Silva of face to the season 2022-2023. And reason does not be missing him to the trainer of the Manchester City. The Portuguese footballer, if it abandons the Etihad Stadium, will be one of the traspasos more expensive of this year.
In the last days had begun some rumours that have positioned to Silva like the 'chosen' by Xavi Hernández to fill the gap that would leave Frenkie of Jong in case to abandon the Camp Nou. However, seem to be an alternative for the culés by the available price of the player of 27 years, that would reach the one hundred million euros according to the information of the newspaper 'MARK'.
It is a mount that the Barça can not reach, even if it sells to Frenkie of Jong. The club has like priority to Robert Lewandowski (that it would cost 40-50 millions) and will be more than complicated that they can complete a millionaire operation, taking in account that the economic situation of the Barcelona is very delicate and, as it has recognised Joan Laporta, the club still is in UCI: "When we arrive the club was clinically died, now are in the UCI", said the president in the Senate blaugrana.
The crisis forces to the Barça to take drastic decisions (the sale of 49,9% of BLM or a percentage of the television rights), but also to live a new market of signings very discreet in which they will go back to bet by the free transfers (like the one of Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessié) or signings by prices very low, waiting for what can happen with Robert Lewandowski that will suppose an important outlay (and it will be necessary to see how assumes ).
A real option for the Barça?
In the last days, in addition to the interest of the Barcelona, has stood out that Silva would be had to listen an offer of the Barça and that, besides, his intention is to abandon the Manchester City. It was related with the Real Madrid during quite a lot of time and, in fact, in Italy arrived to inform that the own player had offered to the White House, but the option remained in a rumour.
