Manchester City winger Bernardo Silva will be offered a new long-term deal to stay at the Etihad Stadium.
The 28-year-old’s importance to Pep Guardiola has increased even further since the departure of Riyad Mahrez to Al Ahli and according to Relevo journalist Matteo Moretto, all signs point in the direction of the Portuguese international signing a new deal at City.
Todo apunta a que Bernardo Silva se quede en Manchester y renueve por el City.

Bernardo Silva set for City contract extension?
Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona have both shown an interest in Silva but the Premier League champions reportedly have no intention of negotiating a transfer under any circumstances this summer.
According to Moretto, “People have told me that Bernardo Silva is expected to renew with Man City in the next few days… A deal with Barça is very unlikely.”
The news will be a blow to Barcelona manager Xavi who is still looking to find a wide replacement for Ousmane Dembele. The Frenchman is expected to complete his move to Paris Saint-Germain this week.
