Manchester City are reportedly willing to sell Bernardo Silva for £50m this summer, with the likes of Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain understood to be interested.

Manchester City are reportedly prepared to sell midfielder Bernardo Silva for £50m this summer.

The 29-year-old has once again been a key cog in the Man City machine this season, helping the club to a record-breaking fourth straight Premier League crown.

Silva provided two assists on Sunday afternoon, when Pep Guardiola's side breezed past West Ham United at the Etihad to condemn Arsenal to a second-placed finish.

Since making the high-profile switch from French outfit Monaco during the summer of 2017, the attacker has played 354 times for Man City, scoring on 67 occasions.

Silva's has enjoyed a trophy-laden spell so far on the blue side of Manchester City, winning one Champions League, five Premier Leagues and four EFL Cups, just to name a few honours.

Man City 'set asking price for Silva'

According to Football Insider, there is a price point at which Man City would let Silva bring his seven-year association with the Citizens to an end.

The report claims that the Portugal international has a release clause in his current deal at the Etihad, agreed following an extension last summer.

It is understood that Silva is available to any potential suitors for £50m during the summer trading point, with a host of European giants circling around the midfielder.

Barcelona have been heavily linked with a swoop for the 29-year-old over the past 12 months, with his former Man City teammate Ilkay Gundogan joining the Catalan club before the 2023-24 term.

However, it has been reported that Xavi's troops have cooled their interest in Silva, focusing more on the capture of Xavi Simons from Paris Saint-Germain.

PSG join race for Silva

Speaking of Les Parisiens, it is believed that the perennial Ligue 1 champions are plotting a move for Man City's Silva over the course of the summer.

Following the departure of Kylian Mbappe at the end of the term, PSG will be looking to enter a new era under the tutelage of head coach Luis Enrique.

It is understood that the Spaniard is a keen admirer of Silva, who at 29 years old still has plenty to offer to the top level of football for many years to come.

Silva could feature in a Man City shirt for the last time on Saturday afternoon, when the Citizens clash with Manchester City in the FA Cup final at Wembley.
