Barcelona will attempt to recruit Bernardo Silva on a permanent basis this summer, with the 28-year-old eager to join the Catalan club.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona is still interested in Bernardo Silva. The 28-year-old wants to join the Catalan club during the summer transfer window. However, obtaining his services from Premier League team Manchester City may be difficult for the Blaugrana.
Since joining Manchester City from AS Monaco in July 2017, Bernardo Silva has been a critical piece in Pep Guardiola’s juggernaut. In the previous half-decade, the Portuguese international has been a regular for both club and country. However, his status at the club level has grown significantly in recent seasons.
The 28-year-old has appeared in over 300 games for Manchester City, with 55 goals and 59 assists. However, Silva, who has won the Premier League on many occasions, is eager to go on a new adventure. And Barcelona may try to offer him that during the current summer transfer window.

However, according to recent sources, Barcelona may rule out a summer transfer for Silva owing to his exorbitant price tag. The 28-year-old Premier League winner, though, remains a major target for the Blaugrana. According to the source, the player is eager to join Barcelona during the current transfer window.
According to Mundo Deportivo, the reigning La Liga winners want to sign the Portuguese international this summer. However, with Manchester City still asking a high fee to part ways with Silva, acquiring his services may be difficult for Barcelona.
Nonetheless, it will be intriguing to see whether Barcelona can raise the finances to sign Silva this summer. For the time being, the 28-year-old Premier League champion remains a key target for Barcelona and is eager to join them.
