Fresh off his triumph in the Champions League with Manchester City, Bernardo Silva might be bidding farewell to the club he helped win the trophy this summer. And of course, PSG would be very happy if that ends up being his final decision.
A long-time admirer of Silva, Paris Saint-Germain have emerged as the most probable destination for the Portugal international considering the lack of realistic suitors outside of Paris.
PSG, after a series of disappointments throughout their season, has decided to undergo a makeover and Silva might turn into one of their next-gen leading faces along with Kylian Mbappe.
PSG are on the verge of announcing three new signings (Milan Skriniar, Manuel Ugarte, and Marco Asensio) as well as the sacking of Christophe Galtier and the hiring of a new manager (reportedly Julian Nagelsmann).
However, with Lionel Messi's departure and uncertainties surrounding Neymar Jr., Luis Campos, PSG's sporting advisor, has the important task of finding a new playmaker to feed Mbappe as many balls as he can handle from the middle and third-fourth of the pitch. That target has a name, and that is Bernardo Silva.
The former Monaco player has been a stalwart for Man City while becoming an indisputable starter on Pep Guardiola's side this season. However, it appears that Silva now harbors aspirations away from Manchester with every possible trophy to be won at Man City already in his bag, as quoted by Téléfoot.
During an interview with the outlet following the Champions League victory, Silva revealed that he has yet to make a decision about his immediate future. He stated, "Honestly, I don't know. I don't know. We'll see what unfolds in the coming weeks and months. But for now, we need to celebrate and enjoy this special achievement."
PSG will not only try to bid and land Silva, but also fellow Man City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan, whose contract runs until June 30 and could come to Paris on a free transfer if player and club reach and agreement.
