Bernardo Silva to PSG: €60m release clause to be activated

Paris Saint-Germain have been interested in Bernardo Silva for a long time, and the Portuguese midfielder is still a target for the club. According to reports, PSG are ready to pay his release clause in the next transfer window.

Silva’s name was mentioned in connection with PSG last summer, especially after Manchester City won the Champions League. The French champions were one of the clubs interested in signing him to strengthen their squad. Several French journalists even reported that an agreement in principle had been reached.

At the time, the 29-year-old was considering his future, and PSG even seemed to be in competition with Saudi Arabia, where millions of euros were offered to the midfielder. However, the saga came to an abrupt end on August 23rd when Manchester City announced that Silva had signed a contract extension until 2026.

However, a release clause was inserted into the new contract, and this time Paris Saint-Germain are ready to pay it in order to bring Bernardo Silva to the club in the 2024 transfer window.

Miguel Angel de Casas, a journalist for Fichajes.net, claims that the PSG directors are determined to sign the Portuguese attacking midfielder, whose career is managed by Jorge Mendes, who is close to Luis Campos. And to do so, Nasser Al-Khelaifi has agreed to pay the €60 million demanded by Manchester City to release Bernardo Silva. The player himself would not be against the idea of returning to Ligue 1 to play for Paris Saint-Germain.

This information confirms what Le Parisien reported last month, with the French media outlet also mentioning the strong interest of the French directors in the player, who is a key part of City’s performances in the Premier League and Champions League. For €60 million, PSG would be able to significantly strengthen their midfield, a price that is not likely to worry NAK. However, the saga of the summer of 2023 still calls for a certain amount of caution in this Bernardo Silva case.
