Liverpool are reportedly ready to rival PSG and Barcelona for the services of Manchester City playmaker Bernardo Silva.
Pep Guardiola confirmed last year that the Portugal international held a desire to depart from the club, however, he ultimately stayed put to help the Citizens win their sixth Premier League trophy.
Silva’s future is once again being called into question, though, and Pep Guardiola has admitted that he cannot guarantee the ex-Monaco man will stay at the club beyond the end of the summer.
“I always say I want the best for the players. I want Bernardo to stay. 100%. But at the same time if you want to leave, have an offer, clubs come to an agreement. Common sense,” Guardiola affirmed to reporters.
“He’s an important player, special, but I don’t know what will happen. We didn’t get any offer, last season neither. Bernardo’s ready, training well for Sunday.”
“I talk a lot with Bernardo, with all of them, maybe because I’m getting old and we know each other quite well. I’m more relaxed as a manager with them, I know them.”
“Their feelings, the good and bad moments. But not about this situation, if I have to tell him something I tell him, but we don’t have doubts about the situation. He’s happy, engaged, he has a beautiful dog. He’s happy here, what will happen will happen.”
La Liga giants, have supposedly told the Citizens that they will make an offer for the 27-year-old, however, PSG are being tipped to hijack the Blaugrana’s move with the influence of Luis Campos.
Now, Spanish outlet Fichajes has reported that the Merseyside Reds could now join the race for Silva amid their midfield injury crisis, with Alcantara, Curtis Jones and Oxlade-Chamberlain all out of action.
The Merseyside Reds are yet to sign a new lynchpin in the summer, and Jurgen Klopp insisted that he would not only make additions for the short-term after Thiago went off injured against Fulham.
