‘A true jewel’: Pep Guardiola opens up on Bernardo Silva's persistent links to Barcelona

Man City boss Pep Guardiola has reacted to how he feels about Bernardo Silva being constantly linked with a move to Barcelona in recent years.

In a recent press event, he explained: “Barça has never called for him. For years there has been a lot of talk, but no one calls us, I hope he stays, he is a first team player for us, a true jewel. If you want a player, you have to call , and it did not happen.”

Bernardo has been a long-term target for Barcelona. But the club has not been able to make a move for him because of how expensive his potential transfer poses to be.

The Blaugrana will probably have to generate major funds from selling players to have a shot at signing the Portugese midfielder in the summer. However, he has not been named as a priority target ever since Hansi Flick took over the club.

Silva made 49 appearances for the Cityzens last season. He scored 11 goals and provided 10 assists, as well as helping them to their fourth straight Premier League title.
