Manchester City became only the second side to win the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup during the same season after beating Inter Milan in the European final on Saturday. 

Pep Guardiola’s side had already lifted both domestic trophies, and Rodri’s second-half goal was enough to seal a 1-0 win over Inter and earn the club their first ever Champions League triumph.

Only Manchester United in 1999 have achieved the feat previously, meaning the current City team will undoubtedly go down as one of English football’s greatest sides.

Now, though, it appears that one of their key players wants to leave the club.

As per 90min, midfielder Bernardo Silva has told those in charge of the club that he wishes to depart this summer.

Silva, 28, has played an integral role for City since joining the club from French side Monaco back in 2017.

In total, the Portugal international has made 306 appearances across all competitions, scoring 55 goals and providing 59 assists.

Silva could be on his way out of Manchester this summer

He has also won no fewer than 14 trophies during his time in Manchester, including five Premier League titles and, most recently, the Champions League.

Despite his hugely successful spell in Manchester so far, the report claims that Silva is keen to seek a new challenge.

It is also claimed that City won’t stand in Silva’s way if he is the subject of an offer, providing that their valuation of £75 million is met.

In previous years, Silva has been linked with several clubs including Spanish giants Barcelona and French champions Paris Saint-Germain.

The player’s current contract isn’t set to expire until the summer of 2025, which would likely put City in a commanding position during any potential negotiations with other clubs.

This season, Silva scored seven goals and provided eight assists in 55 appearances across all competitions, playing  crucial role as Guariola’s side completed their remarkable achievement.
