According to a recent report from Spanish media outlet Diario Gol, the relationship between Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola and Bernardo Silva is getting worse, and the Portuguese attacker could move to Real Madrid. Silva, who was a crucial player for City last season, has struggled so far this campaign, and it is being said that he is unhappy with Guardiola’s substitution.
Riyad Mahrez is the other option which the former Barcelona manager likes to use in place of Silva. Real Madrid are said to be looking at attacking midfielders as Toni Kroos, and Luka Modric are not in their prime anymore. The report mentions that Bernanrdo Silva has contacted Florentino Perez to offer his services to Real Madrid.
Guardiola had praised Silva highly last season, and he claimed that he was one of the undroppables in his side. However, the situation this season has seemingly taken a turn for the worse. Hence, Real Madrid might get an opportunity in the summer of 2020 to pounce on him.
What will Silva bring to the Bernabeu?
The 25-year-old is currently in the prime of his career, and he can play on the right flank as a winger or as an attacking midfielder. Last season, the Citizens had missed Kevin De Bruyne for the most part, but Silva was brilliant as his replacement. His energy, ability to press and on the ball qualities made him a standout player. The performance from last season earned him a 9th place finish in the recently concluded Ballon d’Or race.
With Modric already being 34, Zidane should be on the lookout for a creative midfielder. Silva has the ingenuity to open up defences with his clever pass, and he can take on defenders in one on one situations. The 25-year-old currently has a long term contract with the Citizens as he has his deal at the Etihad up until 2025. Given that he is in his prime, we believe he could cost over £100m. However, his recent form would be quite concerning for the Citizens.
It remains to be seen whether there is any truth to these reports or not. City are currently going through a torrid time as they are lagging way behind in the title race to Liverpool. When a team goes through a bad time, there are often gossips and rumours which flutter around indicating the fall out between the players and managers. Whatever it may be, Real Madrid should undoubtedly keep an eye on this Portuguese ace as he can add a lot of firepower to their side.
