According to ‘Mundo Deportivo’, Bernardo Silva included a €58 million release clause in his new contract with Manchester City. The price is said to have been thought up in part for a possible move to Barcelona.

For the second summer in a row, Bernardo Silva saw his name linked with PSG and, above all, Barcelona. In the end, the player stayed at Manchester City, with whom he even extended his contract until 2026.

However, the possibility of him playing for Barcelona cannot be ruled out, as he reportedly has a surprising clause included in his contract at the time of his extension with the English champions.

According to the newspaper ‘Mundo Deportivo’, the Portuguese wanted to include a release clause set at around €58.5 million. An affordable price for the Catalan club, which has been plagued by financial problems in recent years.

This summer, Manchester City demanded almost €80 million to let the Lisbon-born player go.
