Bernardo Silva was one of two culprits for Manchester City in their penalty shootout defeat to Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League.

The Portuguese international took an infamous kick which went straight to Andriy Lunin, without the Real Madrid goalkeeper having to make much of an effort.

Despite his missed penalty, though, Bernardo Silva could be one of the hottest prospects in the transfer market this summer, as he contemplates a future away from Etihad.

Barcelona still high on Silva

According to Catalunya Radio, Barcelona are among the clubs still keen on securing the services of Bernardo Silva at the end of the season.

The club have been linked with a move for Silva for at least three years now, but a move never materialised due to Barça’s financial hardship.

As we approach the coming summer, Barcelona have another chance of signing the Portuguese playmaker, who could be available for a fee of around €50 million.

Earlier in the year, Barcelona star Joao Felix sparked rumours by claiming he has convinced Silva to join the Catalans in the coming summer.

What does Silva think?

The report goes on to add that Bernardo Silva continues to prioritise a move to Barcelona despite repeated failed attempts to join the Catalan outfit.

At the same time, however, the former AS Monaco starlet also values Manchester City quite highly. He also signed a renewal with Man City last summer, which doesn’t expire until 2026.

Keeping that in mind, Silva may have a decision to make come the end of the season – find a new adventure elsewhere, with Barcelona as a potential destination or continue his career at Manchester City, where he has won almost everything.
