In nine days, the 2021 summer transfer window will almost end. Teams who want to strengthen themselves or, quite simply, players who want to look elsewhere to gain playing time or take on a new challenge, are running out of time. And around the Etihad Stadium, something should move on the straight. Obviously the number one target is Citizens Harry Kane, but in order to earn several million euros, the leaders of Mancun hope to sell some unwanted items to lighten the bill.
On Saturday, the British press argued that Spain international Aymeric Laporte could be sacrificed, but not at any cost, as the Daily Mail spoke of 70 million euros in case of exit. And another name was mentioned by the local media: Bernardo Silva. After a long season with 45 appearances in all competitions, the Portuguese midfielder has notably seen Jack Grealish at the Skyblues, which has made him more competitive. Suddenly an exit seems possible.
During this summer transfer window, the Portuguese international (59 caps, 7 goals) has long been linked with Atlético de Madrid, Arsenal or Tottenham to lower the asking price for Harry Kane, but he has not changed yet. It could happen soon, however. According to the Daily Star, AC Milan will storm the 27-year-old. UK media claim the Rossoneri will offer a hassle-free two-year loan: a first check for € 17.5million on contract signing and another for € 35million on the forced purchase option .
Thus, Manchester City is expected to be £ 45million or collect around € 52.5million. An operation that could appeal to the main players and to the English club, which spent 50 million euros in 2017 to snatch him from AS Monaco. So will Bernardo Silva discover a new league in a few days after Liga Bwin, Ligue 1 and Premier League? In any case, AC Milan have already thought of everything to win over the Citizens.
