Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez has reached out to Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva in the last few hours to assure him that the Catalan club is still working to sign him.

Silva has been a long-term target for Barcelona, and Xavi is keen to bring him in to help rebuild the team. The Portuguese midfielder is seen as a versatile player who can play in a number of positions, and he would add a lot of creativity and attacking threat to the Barcelona midfield.

However, a move for Silva is not straightforward. City are demanding a high transfer fee for the player, and Barcelona are still trying to sell some of their own players in order to raise funds.

Despite the challenges, Xavi is confident that Barcelona can eventually agree a deal for Silva. The manager has spoken to the player directly to let him know that he is still wanted, and he has also assured him that the club is working hard to make the move happen.

Silva is said to be eager to join Barcelona, and he is willing to wait for the club to sort out their finances. If a deal can be agreed, he would be a major coup for Xavi and Barcelona.

Here are some additional details about the transfer:

  • Barcelona are reportedly willing to offer €80 million for Silva, but City are holding out for a fee of €100 million.
  • The two clubs are still some way apart in their valuation of the player, but there is hope that a deal can be struck.
  • Silva has a contract with City until 2025, but he is said to be keen to move to Barcelona this summer.
  • If a deal is agreed, Silva would be the club’s third signing of the summer, following the arrivals of Franck Kessie and Andreas Christensen.

The transfer window closes on August 31st, so Barcelona will need to act quickly if they are to sign Silva.
