Bernardo Silva, the midfielder for Manchester City, has caught the attention of Saudi Pro League club Al Hilal, who are reportedly preparing to make an offer for him in the upcoming summer transfer window. Although Manchester City is looking to renew his current contract, which expires on June 30, 2025, Bernardo Silva is reportedly considering his options and has not yet committed to an extension.
Having played a vital role in Manchester City’s successful treble-winning season, securing the Premier League, FA Cup, and UEFA Champions League titles, the 28-year-old Portuguese attacking midfielder is now weighing his choices. Alongside interest from the Saudi Pro League club, Barcelona and Paris St. Germain are also keen on signing Bernardo Silva, as he has been linked with a move to Barcelona in the past two summers.
The significant salary offered by the Saudi Pro League club could potentially sway Bernardo Silva’s decision regarding his next move. Additionally, the recent transfer of his national teammate Ruben Neves from Wolves to Al Hilal earlier this month might serve as further motivation for him to consider a similar path if the offer proves enticing.
Conversely, the recent arrival of his Manchester City teammate Ilkay Gundogan at FC Barcelona could also influence Bernardo Silva’s decision-making process, making the Spanish side an appealing option for his future plans. Since joining Manchester City in 2017, Bernardo Silva has played a crucial role in the club’s success, contributing to their five Premier League titles under coach Pep Guardiola in the past six years. It remains to be seen what the Portuguese star will ultimately decide to do this summer.
