The Bernardo Silva transfer saga continues with Paris Saint-Germain and FC Barcelona in the mix. However, the Spanish club may not be a viable destination as the days pass.
Jijantes FC’s Gerard Romero reports that Silva has desired to join Barcelona for three years. However, a potential move would require several favorable circumstances.

PSG’s interest in the Portuguese midfielder adds another dimension to the transfer saga, potentially presenting Silva with an alternative option. Silva, who recently completed a successful season with a treble win, may seek a new challenge.
Still, Manchester City is in no hurry to sell their star player, as he remains under contract until 2025. While Silva’s contract gives Manchester City leverage, the player’s aspirations and potential offers from other clubs may play a role in his decision.
The Athletic’s David Ornstein reports that Manchester City is intensifying its efforts to convince Silva to stay. The Premier League side recognizes Silva’s talent and the impact he brings to their midfield, making it crucial for them to retain his services.
