Bernardo Silva’s father has admitted there were talks between the midfielder and Barcelona this summer.

The Manchester City star was heavily linked with a move to Spain in the transfer window, but a move never materialized despite it seemed for a while they would fall into place.

“There have been many talks, but no concrete offer has been made at the times when we thought it was good,” he said.

‘When the time came, we realized that it was no longer the right time for all parties involved. It has to be done rationally and it was not the ideal scenario for Bernardo.’

Silva was Barcelona’s main target towards the end of the period, but the club had to focus on registering new signings as quickly as possible during a period of financial difficulties.

Hector Bellerin and Marcos Alonso were among those to be registered meaning a deal for Silva would have been rushed late.

Paulo Silva emphasized the time it took to be good, and that it wasn’t in the summer.

“He’s a mature player, he’s 28 years old,” he said. “Things should be done rationally, not emotionally.”

Barca boss Xavi is believed to be a big fan of the midfielder and could return for his services at a later date.

Manchester City are unlikely to sell during the season, so January may be unlikely, but a move could take place next summer, despite Silva’s contract still having two years left.
