It looks like a chain reaction. The Kylian Mbappe (24) 먹튀검증 transfer saga continues.
Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportivo reported on Friday (June 5) that “FC Barcelona are looking to sign Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva (28) in preparation for the departure of Ousmane Dembele (26). Barcelona president Juan Laporta is also pushing for a deal. It is the centerpiece of the summer transfer window,” the report said.
“Silva’s agent, Jorge Mendes, is having a big influence on the transfer. He is in close contact with Barcelona. He is trying to convince City,” and “Silva wants to go to Barcelona. City manager Pep Guardiola has promised to let him go if a reasonable offer comes in.”
Silva has been a regular midfielder under Pep Guardiola. But last season, he found himself increasingly out of contention. There were tactical changes and new players like Jack Grealish, 27, and Phil Foden, 23, stepped up. Despite being part of City’s triumphs (Premier League, Champions League, and FA Cup), Silva has been heavily linked with a move away.
Dembele is still a hot commodity in the European transfer market. PSG also wanted Silva at one point. The tables have turned. PSG are close to signing Barcelona winger Dembele, with an official announcement expected soon. Sources including European soccer expert Fabrizio Romano have reported that Dembele has signed for PSG.
The Mbappe transfer saga continues. PSG and Mbappe have already turned their backs on each other. Mbappe’s options were to join Real Madrid or stay with PSG for one more season. However, PSG are prepared to sell Mbappe if he stays. Already, the Amir of Qatar has been angered by Mbappe’s brazen behavior. Mbappe is a free agent (FA) next year, and he’s sticking with Real Madrid. PSG are hoping to fill Mbappe’s void by bringing in Dembele, once considered one of Europe’s top talents.
Barcelona, who let Dembele go, are looking to fill the void with Silva. Barcelona also tried to sign Silva last winter. In the aftermath of Dembele’s departure, they’ve stepped up their pursuit of Silva. “City will have to find a replacement if they let Silva go,” added Mundo Deportivo.
Bernardo Silva’s transfer rumors have been renewed.
