Bernardo Silva set to join The Blues of Manchester as he arrives for medical
Monaco playmaker Bernardo Silva is closer to a move to Manchester City despite already holding talks with Manchester United.
Reports suggest that the Portuguese is closer to £58m move to Manchester City and his in the city for his medicals.
The Monaco playmaker had talks with cross-town rivals United in the spring, who even went as far as discussing where he would fit into Jose Mourinho’s team, but City have moved first and hardest to make their interest concrete and are now set to sign the Portuguese international pending a medical.
22-year-old Silva began his career with Benfica before moving to Monaco, where he formed part of the team’s young and exciting core. While the Ligue 1 side are keen to hold on to as many of their prospects as possible, building on a Champions League semi-final appearance, the £58m sale of Silva may be essential in their quest to keep in-demand teen forward Kylian Mbappé.
