Silva is close to leaving Manchester City
Silva is close to leaving Manchester City for a strange reason. The Portugal international wants to decide his future before the new season.

The Citizens lost the final to Chelsea in Porto.
Bernardo Silva is close to leaving Manchester City
According to the Daily Telegraph, Manchester City is ready to sell Silva during this summer’s transfer window.
According to the newspaper, Manchester City is seriously ready to sell the Portuguese playmaker to one of the big clubs.
This decision came from the Sky Blues officials to raise funds with the aim of strengthening other positions as the team needs midfield players.
In fact, Silva is a favorite player for Pep Guardiola. However, the team has a large number of playmakers.
In addition, there are many players in the attacking midfield and wings, while there is weakness in the attack. And the departure of Sergio Aguero may add to the problem.
Thus, Manchester City officials decided that Silva could be sold to another major European club for an excellent sum of money.
After that, Manchester City could reinvest the amount immediately to sign a brilliant striker such as Erling Haaland, from Borussia Dortmund.
Man City chooses Aguero’s successor
Sergio Aguero left Manchester City this summer. As soon as his contract expired, he moved for free to Barcelona, Spain.
Now, Guardiola is looking for a new striker to replace Aguero’s departure. The choice fell on one of the top scorers in Bundesliga last season.
The most prominent candidate is Andre Silva, especially after the club officially moved to negotiate his inclusion. In addition, the administration spoke with the player’s representatives to find out his opinion on the possibility of joining the Citizens.
The Portuguese international striker, Silva, might cost Man City around 40 million euros. Andre had scored 28 goals in 32 matches in the Bundesliga last season.
