Newly-minted PSG vice-captain Kylian Mbappe ‘wants PSG to make a fresh move’ for his former Monaco team-mate and current Manchester City star, Bernardo Silva.
The diminutive Portuguese has once again been a pivotal cog in the City wheel, but could be available this summer, with Silva still wanting ‘to move closer to his homeland.’
Barcelona recently ruled out a move for Silva, refusing to stump up his £70.8million price tag, despite the 28-year-old openly hinting at a desire to leave Manchester.
According to The Sun, Mbappe desires to have Silva join him at PSG after the two shared the pitch together for Monaco between 2015-2017.
The Portuguese star has admitted he often thinks about moving back to his homeland, and starting a new project after six seasons with the Citizens.
‘I won’t hide that my goal in the coming years, if something good happens elsewhere, will probably be to move to a new project.
‘Going into a new project at the age of 29, I’ll only finish this contract probably at 34.
If you ask me: what did you think 10 years ago?
‘I’m not going to lie: it’s not something I don’t think about.
I think about it every year.
