Manchester City transfer news – Bernardo Silva wants PSG move

Manchester City star Bernardo Silva wants to seek pastures anew next year, that’s according to French news outlet, L’Equipe. The Portuguese star is keen on joining PSG, a club that has been linked with him in the past too.

Silva was rumoured to have an agreement with the Parisians last summer but a move didn’t materialise due to financial complications for them. However, the club haven’t cooled their interest in him, and could pursue him more aggressively now that Lionel Messi is set to depart Paris as PSG will need reinforcements to fill the gap.

Manchester City transfer news – Ilkay Gundogan refuses to address transfer rumors

Another Manchester City star linked with a move away from the Etihad is Ilkay Gundogan, whose contract with the club expires in June this year. Barcelona have emerged as his next potential destination as the club looks for new reinforcements in midfield with long-time servant Sergio Busquets set to leave the Camp Nou this summer.

However, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano revealed that Gundogan won’t reveal his transfer plans right now as the German is solely focused on winning the treble with City, who are in contention to win the Premier League, the Champions League and the FA Cup.

Manchester City transfer news – Declan Rice in the radar

With Jude Bellingham on his way to Real Madrid, Manchester City have turned their attention towards Declan Rice. The England international is one of the hottest prospects right now and given his contract expires next year, the Hammers will be looking to cash in instead of risking the prospect of losing him on a free transfer in 2024.

However, given he’s only 24 years old, Rice won’t come cheap. His current market value stands at €80 million, according to Transfermarkt.
