Barça continue to be linked with a move for Bernardo Silva despite big spending this summer at the Camp Nou. According to all rumors, the midfielder is excited about the possibility of a move to Barcelona. However, it won’t be easy to convince Man City to part ways with the Portuguese star.
Moreover, it won’t be easy for Barca to finance the deal, particularly as the Catalans are still waiting to register Jules Kounde after his move from Sevilla.
Catalunya Radio reports that Barcelona have “two options” when trying to bring in Bernardo in this transfer window:
One option is to sell Frenkie de Jong. We talk about the Dutchman’s future all summer. But he remains firm that he does not want to leave.
The second option is to sell Memphis Depay, Sergino Dest and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
It already seems that Memphis may leave shortly, with Juventus the favorites to land the attacker. Meanwhile Sergino Dest’s future is uncertain again after he was left out against Rayo.
Chelsea are also thought to be keen on Aubameyang. But Xavi made it clear in his presser ahead of the Rayo draw that he wants to keep the striker in his squad.
