Bernardo Silva, the Manchester City attacking midfielder linked with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), has stated that he does not know what his future holds.
The 27-year-old has three years left on his City contract.
According to the French newspaper Le Parisien (via Marca), Paris is considering a move for Silva and is willing to send Neymar to the Etihad.
PSG’s new manager, Christophe Galtier, is said to be a big fan of the former Monaco midfielder and has prioritized bringing him in this summer.
In an interview with Sky Sports, the PSG-linked Portuguese star was asked to comment on his future in Manchester. He refused to commit his long-term future to the Premier League champions but pledged to give his all as long he wore their shirt. He said:
“I’m not sure I think. What’s really important is that I’m preparing my season as well as possible and for as long as I play for Man City.
I will always give my best; my relationship with the fans and the club is fantastic, and I will always respect that.”
City signed Silva from Monaco for €50 million in July 2017. He has played 251 games for the club, recording 48 goals and 51 assists across competitions.
Silva has won 11 trophies with the Cityzens, including four Premier League titles.
PSG could fix their creativity issues by signing Bernardo Silva
The Parisians have a solid defence and a world-class attack, but their midfield is not yet comparable to the continent’s best teams’. That could change with Bernardo Silva’s arrival.
With Silva sitting at the top of the midfield, the Ligue 1 giants would not have any shortage of goalscoring opportunities. Apart from creating goals, the Portugal international can score a few as well.
Furthermore, the ex-Monaco player has plenty of experience in the French top flight (24 goals and 15 assists in 101 games).
That means Parisians won’t have to worry about making him feel at ease.
