Only on one condition will Man City accept £84m blockbuster deal

Manchester City is willing to accept an £84 million blockbuster deal on one condition.

Manchester City will reportedly only allow the sale of Bernardo Silva to FC Barcelona if the Spanish club meets the club’s €100 million (£84 million) asking price for the Portuguese international.


According to the Athletic, the reigning Premier League champions are determined to keep Silva this summer, despite reports that the player is eager to join Barcelona, with the Catalan club themselves planning a move for the City playmaker.

According to the report, City will only allow the blockbuster transfer to take place if Barcelona meets their £84m valuation for Silva, a fee that Pep Guardiola and the Manchester giants will not reduce by a single penny in order to send a strong message to their European rivals over their star player.


City have seen numerous top players leave the Etihad Stadium this summer with Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and Oleksandr Zinechnko all departing the north of England for move to Arsenal and Chelsea respectively, and the Premier League giants are set to stand firm over Barcelona’s pursuit to sign Silva.

The midfielder seemingly has a dream of one day playing for the La Liga giants, yet with City keen to keep hold of Silva, a transfer looks extremely unlikely this summer for Barcelona, especially given their outrageous financial situation and their current inability to register all their new signings.

Jules Kounde is yet to be registered by Barcelona following their opening game of the new La Liga season, and unless Xavi Hernandez can make a sale in the coming weeks, the Frenchman could be denied the chance to play for his new side, which in turn all-but rules out Silva leaving City for Catalonia.


Barcelona have had a summer transfer window very few fans will be forgetting about anytime soon, yet their attempt to sign Silva seems to be the European giants’ breaking point, and City will be hopeful that Xavi will soon ditch his dream of signing the 27-year-old midfielder this summer.


Whilst it makes sense why both Barcelona and Silva want a move to happen, the finances City are demanding simply makes a deal impossible for the Catalan side, and the Manchester titans will be praying that this latest update puts a nail in the coffin with the transfer saga for another window.
