Bernardo off to La Liga?

Barcelona want to sign 27-year-old Manchester City's Portugal midfielder Bernardo Silva, according to Mundo Deportivo.

A rough translation...

"For Xavi Hernández it is important to have a 'top' alternative in midfield that accompanies Pedri because the coach understands that the figure of a contrasting interior is essential for his game plan. In this sense, one of the most liked within the Catalan club is the Portuguese Bernardo Silva (27 years old), from Manchester City.

It seems a complicated option but the Portuguese is still thinking of changing the scene and leaving England. In fact, Barça already tested the option last season and the Portuguese saw it with good eyes because he would be delighted to play in La Liga and personally he is too far from home and from his family."
