Bernardo Silva

Bernardo Silva remains a target for PSG, but they believe it may be too late in the window for the Manchester City winger to be allowed to leave.

Silva has also been linked with a move away for much of the transfer window, with Barcelona the main club targeting him.

If he did move to PSG, it is unclear the role he would play in a team that already boasts the likes of Neymar, Lionel Messi and Kyllian Mbappe.

Speaking after Man City’s 3-3 draw with Barcelona on Wednesday, manager Pep Guardiola said: ‘He is our player. We want him to be with us because he is very important.

‘Having said that, I don’t want anyone to be unhappy. But I don’t want him to leave because he is a superlative player.

‘As a player and as a person, he is one of the best I have ever had. In any competition he is the best player.

‘If an offer arrives there are seven days left and if Bernardo leaves we would have to go to the market and not it’s easy.’

Man City’s excellent start to the Premier League hit its first snag last week, when they were forced to come back from 3-1 down to draw with Newcastle. Silva scored the equaliser after 64 minutes.

The Cityzens are next in action on Saturday when they take on Crystal Palace at the Etihad.
