Silva was one of Xavi’s top transfer targets, but Barcelona were unable to raise enough funds to make an offer to the Premier League champions for Silva’s services.

City then decided to no longer listen to any offers for the player. Silva himself opted to stay in Manchester due to the stability it offered, with Barcelona still uncertain whether they could fund a deal and his registration with so little time to go in the transfer window.

As reported by Barca Universal, Silva may not be joining this season but is keen to make a move to Camp Nou next season. Silva remains keen to play for the Blaugrana in the summer transfer window of 2023.

Barcelona failed in signing him last summer and have failed in landing him once again this summer. The club are hoping to make it third-time lucky next summer.

They may not get that chance, though. As The Times reported, Paris Saint-Germain is considering making a move for the 28-year-old.

The French champions are not in financial trouble like Barcelona and could easily afford Manchester City’s fee.
