Bernardo Silva celebrating

Bernardo Silva to Barcelona?

Barcelona, thanks to Joan Laporta’s excellent financial management, is already in a position to sign again. They are dreaming of Robert Lewandowski, and it is possible that the Polish striker will arrive, but there is another player on Xavi’s wish list and that is Bernardo Silva. 

The club is seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and is renewing its young stars, and this makes them strong, apart from being able to sign completely changes the outlook for the future of the club. It is a good idea to enter to be able to bet on the Catalan side, as they promise to compete for all the trophies. There they can find the best places to do it with the highest standards. 

The chance of the Portuguese international’s arrival is gaining momentum because of the possible sale of Frenkie de Jong to Manchester United, and because of what Guardiola said at the presentation of a friendly game between his team, Manchester City and Barcelona. 

Pep stated that anything can happen in the summer transfer window and that he doesn’t want players who don’t want to be with him, referring to the rumour that Silva likes the idea of playing at the Camp Nou and would ask to leave his club. 

What does the Portuguese bring to the Blaugrana club? 

Bernardo Silva is a born playmaker, the English press love him and have described him as perfect. He can play in any position in midfield and likes to have the ball, this is what appeals to Xavi as Barça’s game is one of possession. 

He would surely be the axis of the team and would help a lot to complement Pedri and Gavi, and if he joins up with Lewandowski he will supply him with balls and the Spanish team’s forward line would undoubtedly be one of the best in Europe. 

The idea of having Bernardo Silva is to have a total midfielder. With Busquets having his back he would only have offensive responsibilities, although he can also help in the recovery, but is not his forte. What Xavi wants with the player is for him to help generate a lot of play and not lack balls for the strikers. 

The Portuguese player is capable of breaking down opposition defences with a pass, but his dribbling is also impeccable, this complements perfectly with the Culé style, and even in a way what they are looking for with Silva is to be able to replicate Messi, as he can even play as a false nine. 

His personality is strong and that is something that he likes a lot too because it makes him a leader in the dressing room and Xavi wants players with strong character who know how to handle the pressure that a club like Barcelona has. 

The chances he has to make it 

A few months ago, it looked very complicated for the current Manchester City number 20 to arrive in Catalonia, but the club’s financial rescue made it possible for the club’s fans to dream of the Portuguese. 

The very possible sale of Frenkie de Jong also opens up a possibility for Barcelona to cash in and bid for Bernardo Silva. 

There are reports that the player wants to go to Barcelona because he is interested in the project, and it is one of his dreams, to be able to wear the Barcelona shirt. Guardiola would not oppose his departure, on the contrary, he would help him to leave, as he does not want to frustrate the player and does not want to force anyone into his team. 

Obviously, the Cityzens are not going to give away one of their stars, and they have already put a price tag on him. 94 million euros if Barcelona wants him at Camp Nou.  

There is still a long way to go in this story, but it doesn’t look complicated for the Portuguese to end up in Barcelona. Does Bernardo Silva arrive at Barça?
