After the signings of Robert Lewandowski and Jules Conde, Barcelona will not stop until they complete the string of contracts identified as a priority as the sports department began planning the next team with Xavi Hernandez.
Barcelona are doing everything they can to take on Bernardo Silva from Manchester City, and as happened with most of the players who came to the Camp Nou this summer, the player’s will is expected to be essential to achieve his signature.
In fact, the preliminary figures of sporting director Matteo Alemani and his staff were based on the departure of Frenkie de Jong so that Bernardo Silva could arrive.
However, after activating the economic levers that made it possible to go to the transfer market with guarantees and will also allow the registration of all new deals, the departure of the Dutchman is not necessary to sign Bernardo Silva, according to the Spanish newspaper “Sports”.

The ideal solution would, of course, be for De Jong to agree to end his tenure at Camp Nou, as Barcelona would then save on wage bills.
Pep Guardiola knows Bernardo Silva’s move is in everyone’s best interest, but staying at Barcelona with a sine qua non for Frenkie is his acceptance of a salary cut.
To this day, the player remains steadfast in his position and does not want to cut his salary or leave, and in any case, contrary to what is happening with the Dutchman, Barcelona is working hard to seal the deal with Bernardo Silva.
