Bernardo Silva ‘schedules Barcelona visit’ is a hint of De Jong’s exit

Bernardo Silva could be on his way to Barcelona, while Frenkie de Jong is on his way out.

Bernardo Silva is reportedly planning to look at homes in Barcelona this week as speculation mounts that he may leave Manchester City. The arrival of the Portuguese at the Camp Nou would almost certainly be the final nail in the coffin for Frenkie de Jong, who has been heavily linked with Chelsea and Manchester United.

Bernardo is a fan favorite at the Etihad, and he received a standing ovation when he came off the bench against Bournemouth on Saturday. Fans sang his name for what seemed like an eternity, and he stayed after the final whistle to express his gratitude.

It wouldn’t be a stretch to interpret it as a possible farewell, with the player rumored to be interested in joining up with Xavi in Catalonia. Barcelona are short on funds and have had difficulty registering their slew of new summer signings, but they could make room for the City star by auctioning off De Jong.

Bernardo is set to view houses in Barcelona this week, according to transfer expert Gerard Romero, as talks over a summer deal continue.

Negotiations with super-agent Jorge Mendes are ongoing with Barca thought to be readying a proposal, which may only be possible after cashing in on De Jong. Advancements in the Bernardo deal would surely suggest that the Dutchman’s future is destined for either Man Utd or Chelsea, with both Premier League heavyweights in contention. 

The Red Devils agreed on a fee of £72 million weeks ago, but the deal has been stalled due to De Jong’s apparent desire to stay at Camp Nou and £17 million in deferred wages owed by Barcelona. Chelsea is reportedly willing to match the financial proposal in an attempt to seize control of the deal.
