Bernardo Silva close to Man City exit?

However, in the last two summers, the 29-year-old has angled for a move away from City, citing a desire for a change of scenery and a need to experience something different.

“I’ll be very honest, I don’t know. We’ll see in the next few days. Even if I knew, it wouldn’t be the space to talk about it [on international duty],” the 28-year-old told Eleven Sports when quizzed about his future

According to 90min, PSG are very keen on Silva, despite the player's personal preference being a move to Barcelona. 

The Catalans are in a tough position financially and will instead go for Ilkay Gundogan who is the cheaper Man City midfielder to acquire, potentially clearing the way for PSG to make a move.
