According to Barca Universal, Barcelona has offered Silva a three-year deal with an option of a further year in a deal expected to cost in the region of €65mil plus €10mil in easy variables.

The 28-year-old midfielder is also expected to rise to Barcelona’s second highest-paid player behind Robert Lewandowski, with an annual salary package of €10 to 11 million if he decides to join the Catalan club.

Silva joined City from Monaco in a £43m deal in the summer of 2017 and has won 12 major trophies during his time in Manchester, including the UEFA Champions League

City to convince Silva to stay

Meanwhile, Manchester City remain hopeful of convincing midfielder Bernardo Silva to stay at the Premier League club and would like him to extend his contract, Goal reports.

The 28-year-old’s current contract with the reigning Premier League champions is set to run until 2025, but Pep Guardiola is determined to keep him at the Etihad Stadium for longer.

Silva played a key role for Manchester City as the English club made history by winning the FA Cup, Premier League and UEFA Champions League in one season for the first time in their existence.

PSG plotting €80m bid for Silva

Earlier, Sports Brief reported Paris Saint-Germain are ready to kick-start their summer splurge to bring in some of Europe’s top talents, and top on their list is Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva.

Following the exit of Lionel Messi to Inter Miami, the Parisians are looking to strengthen their attack ahead of the 2023/24 season and the Portugal forward is the ideal replacement for the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner.

PSG are ready to sanction an €80million bid for the 28-year-old Manchester City star who played a key role in their UEFA Champions League success last season.
