For the past few summer transfer windows there had been multiple reports of the midfielder’s desire to leave the Etihad. As one of the key parts of Pep Guardiola’s squad, City did not want to lose his services this window. Ilkay Gundogan and Riyad Mahrez have already left the champions this window. The loss of two key players, in addition to Bernardo Silva would’ve been a huge dent to the treble winner’s squad.
With reports emerging of Bernardo Silva agreeing a new contract, it seems the champions can now move onto other transfer business knowing Bernardo’s future is secure.
