Manchester City star Bernardo Silva has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona.

Reports still have it that Barcelona could make a late move for the Portuguese in the last few days of the summer transfer campaign.

The 28-year-old was even benched in Man City’s first two Premier League matches of the season before starting against Newcastle.

Meanwhile, Man City boss Pep has said Silva would be sold at the right price.

Pep Guardiola has told the media: “If you force someone to stay when he doesn’t want to stay, then how can you get the best out of him?

“The transfer window is open for another 10-15 days and anything can happen. A good offer and the player wants to leave – a solution will be found.”

Barcelona will face Manchester City at Camp Nou in a charity game on Wednesday, August 24, to raise awareness for a disease known simply as ALS.

It will be a first return to the Camp Nou for Pep Guardiola, and Barcelona target Bernardo Silva is also expected to feature.
