The World Cup will decide many things in an extraordinary season and there are players who have set this date as a maximum to decide their future.
One of them is Bernardo Silva, who has already warned Barcelona and asked them to see if they will be able to go to him during the summer market. He has a renewal offer from Manchester City and wants to start making the most important decision of his career.
Bernardo Silva is Xavi’s dream since his arrival at Barcelona. Last summer, the club tried to sign him but the failed sale of Frenkie de Jong made the deal impossible.
Now the scenario is different, but the player, who is facing rumors about the lack of salary margin in FC Barcelona, wants to know whether there are options to sign him or not next summer.
Barcelona and especially its president, Joan Laporta, have been clear that the team’s revolution must be completed in the summer. That is why it is necessary to sign a high-level star to accompany Lewandowski, and the two options are Leo Messi and Bernardo Silva.
The first option is very complicated due to his high salary and the renewal offer he received from Paris Saint-Germain, and the Portuguese will be the closest, but the club needs resources to finance the deal.
Bernardo Silva has made it clear once again to Barcelona that he is ready to sign. He has an offer from Manchester City to improve and renew his contract, but he will reject it if the Blaugrana club takes a positive step towards signing him and is willing to reduce his salary if necessary.
His contract expires in 2025 and at Barcelona it is clear he could leave for less than the €80m demanded a few months ago.
Barcelona knows the player’s impulsiveness and the sporting administration has been preparing numbers for weeks to plan for the January and summer market. In this winter market it will be very difficult to sign and strengthening the right-back position will be a priority.
But in the summer, with the departures of Pique and Busquets and the prospect of a major transfer closing, Bernardo Silva could indeed be a good fit. It will not be easy, but it is not ruled out and Barcelona hope that the player will not be rushed.
