And according to the Catalan newspaper Sport, the English team made an offer of 18 million euros annually to the Portuguese Bernardo Silva to stay in the team.
Spanish coach Pep Guardiola, the team’s coach, previously confirmed that Portuguese star Silva is an integral part of the playing system and he does not want him to leave under any name.
The management of the English team has set a minimum amount of 80 million euros to approve the departure of the Portuguese player from the ranks of the first team.
On the other hand, Saudi club Al-Hilal offered 30 million euros in annual salary to the Portuguese star to turn him on this summer, but the player was not persuaded to move to Saudi League.
Barcelona also entered the Spanish club at the negotiating table to secure the services of Bernardo Silva on a one-year loan, but the offer was turned down.
