Pep Guardiola has recently offered his verdict on the departure of Bernardo Silva from Manchester City
Bernardo Silva wanted the departure of Man City
Bernardo Silva would join Manchester City from AS Monaco in July 2017.
Since then, the Portuguese has appeared more than 200 times for the Sky Blues, scoring 36 and assisting 34 in the process.
Silva, now 27, has had a mixed season at Man City. His 2018/19 campaign was arguably his best in England, but his form declined shortly after that, in part due to Silva being used more on the right wing, rather than as a central attacking midfielder where he clearly works best.
Silva’s form has since recovered in 2021/22, with an impressive performance under his belt in a 1-0 win over Chelsea at the weekend.
However, it is worth remembering that Pep Guardiola himself confirmed in August that Silva was one of the players looking at a possible exit from Etihad this summer.
Guardiola on the future of City de Silva
No move materialized for Silva and instead he has stayed put for now, which is likely a huge boost for Man City given his form and recent injuries to players like Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden.
Now, however, Guardiola has spoken again about Silva’s future.
And although he thinks Silva is happy, Guardiola does not seem closed to the idea of Silva leaving the club at the end of this season:
“I never forget the second Premier League we won, with 98 points, he was the best player in England. Was nominated [for an award] but he was the best.
“After that season, he dropped a bit later, he wasn’t in the position he prefers but now he’s back and hopefully he can help us.
“Yes, in the end, he wants to leave and decides [to go] The only thing I can say is that the boy or the club that stays with Bernardo is going to get one of the best players in the world.
“Is it happier? You can’t play like that if you’re not happy, it’s impossible ”.
Pep Guardiola insists that Bernardo Silva is happy at Manchester City, but has hinted that the midfielder could choose to leave the club in the future.
