Xavi admits that Bernardo Silva’s attraction will be too ” amazing “
It’s no secret that Xavi dreams of bringing Lionel Messi back to Barcelona this summer. He himself admitted that in the past. But he said a few days ago that the Argentine had the cards in his hand in this case. The latter can decide not to return, and it is he who has a huge offer in Saudi Arabia. If this is the case, the Blaugranas coach has another player on the horizon to make up for this failure: Bernardo Silva.
The Portuguese’s name has already been circulated on the Barcelona side on numerous occasions in the past. Last summer, it was announced that Silva would soon join Catalonia. He eventually remained in England. However, during a recent interview with Mundo DeportivoXavi was asked about the possibility of him arriving from the middle if Messi took another direction. And the Catalan coach admitted that “it will be wonderful. “
What will the Portuguese decide?
Xavi was quick to add that it would be difficult to bring Silva from City. But he also felt that the prospect of playing for Barcelona would likely attract any player in the world. We’ll see if that will be enough to attract the Portuguese this summer. The latter still has two years left on his contract with City. But if he asked his commanders to leave, they might agree to let him go.
As a reminder, Paris Saint-Germain was also dreaming of luring Silva this summer. Thus, Ile-de-France would undoubtedly compete with Barcelona in this case. It remains to be seen if the 28-year-old will ask to leave. When asked about his future several days ago, he questioned the question. In any case, before the transfer window begins, the former Monaco will play in the FA Cup final with his current club against Manchester United. The match will take place on Saturday 3 June from 4pm at Wembley. A week later, starting at 9pm, Skyblues will face Inter Milan in the Champions League Final at Istanbul’s Ataturk Stadium.
