At least one Manchester City star is still a target for Barcelona this summer
Despite improving their financial operations in the last 12 months, La Blaugrana are expected to face restrictions in the trade market once more.
Despite their prior interest in City ace Bernardo Silva, this is probably going to result in another wave of free transfers. At the beginning of the 2022–23 season, Barca was rumoured to be interested in signing Silva, but they refused to pay City’s €80 million asking price.
A bid for Silva appears to be “impossible,” according to reports from Mundo Deportivo, and Barcelona will rekindle its prior contacts with clubmate Ilkay Gundogan as a substitute.
Gundogan, who scored the game-winning goal on the final day of the previous season to win the Premier League championship, has been a key component of City’s success in recent years. However, his contract expires in June.
The German international may receive a 12-month extension from City at the Etihad Stadium. Barca will, however, counter that and attempt to sign the seasoned midfielder.
