PSG Set To Beat Barcelona To Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva

Paris Saint-Germain are looking to challenge Barcelona for the signature of Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva, reports Foot Mercato.

Silva, 27, has been followed closely by the Blaugrana this summer but, having prioritised other moves, the LaLiga club are now in a position where they must offload players before they can table an offer to City.

Pep Guardiola’s Premier League champions are looking for a transfer fee in the region of €85 million for the Portugal international, and Silva is reportedly open to making the switch back to France if an agreement is reached with PSG — despite previously calling it a dream to play at Camp Nou.

With the Ligue 1 club optimistic that its sporting director Luis Campos would be able to get a deal over the line, PSG are confident of landing the former AS Monaco star if Barcelona continue to hesitate in meeting City’s demands.
