Former Manchester City defender Steve Howey believes playing in La Liga would suit Bernardo Silva.
Bernardo has also helped the Cityzens win a plethora of trophies in his time at the Etihad. The club have won four successive Carabao Cups, three Premier League titles, two Community Shields and an FA Cup.
Whilst he has been highly successful in his time with City, it appears he could be looking for a fresh challenge as Pep Guardiola told the Manchester Evening News: “He’s our player. Not just Bernardo, there are two, three or four players that want to leave but they are our players under contract and when they bring some offer and their agents come here and they want to leave we are open to discuss absolutely everything, but it depends on them.”
Mundo Deportivo reported earlier this month that both Spanish giants Barcelona and Atletico Madrid were interested in the Portuguese international, with former City assistant manager and now Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta also interested in Bernardo according to a report in the Daily Mirror.
Bernardo doesn’t appear to be short of options should he choose to leave the Etihad Stadium this summer, but Steve Howey believes a move to La Liga would suit the playmaker, telling Transfer Tavern: “You’ve seen his performances whilst he’s been at City, you know, a fantastic player. I think technically, playing in La Liga would probably suit him as well, so I think it could be a move which could suit all parties, but ultimately, only if Man City get the money that they want for him.”
