According to a report from Daily Mail, Bernardo Silva is contemplating on the prospect of signing a fresh contract with Manchester City this summer. This development comes amid heavy interest in the midfielder from both Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain. Thus far, neither of the clubs have formally submitted a bid for the 28-year-old Portuguese international. The Sky Blues, in turn, hold aspirations that Silva will endorse a renewed agreement before the onset of the upcoming season.

Silva’s Impressive Campaign With Manchester City Last Season

Silva maintained his streak of impressive performances at the Etihad Stadium in the most recent season. Displaying his prowess in the final third, the 28-year-old contributed significantly with seven goals and eight assists across 55 appearances for Man City in the previous campaign, spanning various competitions.

Hailing from Lisboa, Silva has done well in the attacking department after averaging 1.3 tackles, 0.5 interceptions, 0.7 shots, 0.9 key passes, and 0.8 dribbles per game in the Premier League. His proficiency in keeping possession of the ball and distributing it efficiently was evident as he successfully completed 89.1% of his attempted passes in the first division of English football (statistics sourced from Whoscored).

Good Move From Guardiola In Persuading Him To Stay?

Bernardo Silva is a dynamic attacking midfielder who has held a pivotal role within Manchester City since his arrival in 2017. His skill set encompasses adept dribbling, precise passing, and astute vision, while remaining a goal-scoring threat.

Silva’s versatility as a midfielder shines through, as he possesses a wide array of abilities. His proficiency in manoeuvring past defenders through skilful dribbling, and his capacity to execute pinpoint passes and craft opportunities for his teammates stands out the most. Additionally, his prowess as a finisher has not gone unnoticed, evident in his contributions of significant goals for the Sky Blues in recent seasons.

Silva is a key player for Man City, and he is one of the most important players in the squad. He is a talented player who is good at a number of things, and he is a good fit for the Pep Guardiola’s style of play. If he can continue to develop his game, he could be a star for Manchester City for many years to come. Hence, Guardiola has done well to persuade him into considering a contract renewal with higher wages as his exit would be a huge blow to the Etihad Club.
