However, recent reports claim that a deal for Bernardo Silva to go to Barcelona will not be struck this season.

According to his most recent Twitter, City believe time is no longer on their side to get a deal done, with him saying "Bernardo Silva will not play for Barcelona this season. City is no longer listening to offers for him, it's too late."
The Blaugrana have been seeking Silva's signature for some time now, looking to had his name to a list of Summer signings that include the likes of Raphinha, Jules Kounde, and Robert Lewandowski.
Despite this, Bernardo Silva is quickly looking like the one that got away for Xavi and Barcelona, with Pep Guardiola already stating he wants the player to stay, now it looks more certain than ever.
