Manchester City head coach, Pep Guardiola has said he would be happy if Bernardo Silva continues in the club.
Silva according to reports is heavily linked with a move to Barcelona in Spain.
The Portuguese midfielder has been a high target of Barcelona recommended by Xavi Hernandez.
Speaking on the player, Guardiola said “I would love for Bernardo to continue here, a very special player in the locker room. But I don’t know what will happen.
“What happens will happen, if he stays is perfect, if he has to leave it’s because football is like this.”
“Players have a desire and I’m not a person to stop a person’s desire in life. A football career is so short. I’m a small part of the club, I have to speak to the club, they decide and I say okay.”
“But at the same time if you want to leave, have an offer, clubs come to an agreement. It’s common sense.
“He’s an important player, special, but I don’t know what will happen. We didn’t get any offer, last season either. Bernardo’s ready, training well for Sunday” Guardiola said.
