Bayern Munich looking to sign Bernardo Silva


Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are reportedly showing strong interest in signing Manchester City attacker Bernardo Silva. Man City legend Vincent Kompany, recently appointed as Bayern Munich’s new head coach, is keen to bring in his former teammate. Silva has a £50 million release clause in his contract, and the German club is looking to activate it in the near future.

The 29-year-old, who typically plays as a winger but is also a proficient attacking midfielder, is currently representing Portugal at the 2024 Euros. Silva is expected to make a decision on his future once the tournament concludes, but there is a strong possibility he will choose to join Bayern Munich if they trigger his release clause. The Portuguese star has been linked with moves to Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain over the past few summers, with reports indicating he desires a new challenge in his career.

Silva began his career at Benfica, advancing through their youth ranks before being loaned out to Monaco for his first taste of professional football. Impressed by his performance, Monaco signed him permanently for around £12 million. Silva was a key player in the iconic Monaco squad that won the 2016-17 Ligue 1 title and attracted interest from numerous top clubs. After three successful years in France, Silva joined Manchester City for a reported fee of £42 million.

Silva’s tenure at the Etihad has been marked by considerable success. His trophy cabinet includes six English Premier League titles, two FA Cups, and one UEFA Champions League trophy. Individually, he has been recognized in the PFA Team of the Year twice and the FIFPRO World XI once. In his seven years with City, Silva has made 355 appearances, scoring 67 goals.

While Silva’s departure would be a significant loss for Manchester City, allowing a player to leave if they desire a new challenge is often the best course of action. Pep Guardiola will likely attempt to convince him to stay, but if Silva does move on, he will leave as a Manchester City icon, having impressed fans and teammates alike with his skill and dedication.
