Saudi Arabia has its eyes on Bernardo Silva after contacting stars like Karim Benzema, Ruben Neves, and N’Golo Kante this summer
David Ornstein asserts that the playmaker for Manchester City has received a sizable offer from Saudi Arabia. There have been discussions with Jorge Mendes, the player’s agent.
Since taking over as the head coach of Barcelona, Xavi Hernandez has had his eye on a number of players, including Bernardo Silva. The Spaniard is a tremendous admirer of the Man City superstar, who is valued at €80 million, and thinks he would make the perfect inside midfield partner for Pedri.
Silva was heavily linked to a move to Barcelona last summer, but the deal never materialised because the team lacked the necessary cash. This time, they are dealing with a comparable circumstance. Silva has expressed a desire to quit Manchester City this summer in favour of a new adventure somewhere, despite this. Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona were mentioned as potential options.
But according to Ornstein, it seems like Saudi Arabia has become the newest contender for Silva. The nation has made him a substantial offer since they believe he will leave Etihad in the upcoming summer. Silva, on the other hand, prefers to stay in Europe despite Barcelona and PSG’s desire. Ornstein, however, contends that the playmaker is considering all of his alternatives and will decide accordingly. The player has also been begged to even stay at Man City.
However, Saudi Arabia’s strategy serves as just another reminder that the large volume of money being supplied by the oil-rich country is disrupting the dynamics of the transfer market in Europe. Silva is a very young player who is still at the height of his game, unlike other stars like Cristiano Ronaldo, Kante, or Benzema. Therefore, his probable move to Saudi Arabia might have a significant impact on the country’s footballing goals.
