Just days after the disappointment of a Champions League final defeat to Chelsea, speculation is already building about potential incomings and outgoings at Manchester City this summer. 

Pep Guardiola’s side succumbed to defeat courtesy of Kai Havertz’ first half goal, meaning that the Spaniard is still yet to win the competition since leaving Barcelona in 2012.

With Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia having already departed for Barcelona, a summer spending spree could be in order at the club as they look to go one better next season.

However, it is likely that they will have to sell players before signing anyone and, according to the Telegraph, one of the club’s fan favourites could be first in line for a move elsewhere.

The ‘paper reports that Bernardo Silva could be in line for a move, with a number of clubs around Europe keen on the versatile midfielder.

Bernardo joined Man City from Monaco.

The 26-year-old can play anywhere in midfield as well as on the right of a front three, and could undoubtedly be a useful signing for many of Europe’s top clubs.

Barcelona and Juventus are among the clubs rumoured to be interested in the player, who has scored 45 times in 131 league games for the club and won three Premier League titles, an FA Cup ad four EFL Cups.

Despite Guardiola’s admiration for the player, it is believed that City could demand a substantial fee for Silva and, such is the demand for him, that he may be the easiest player to sell.

News of a rebuilding project at City is believed to have sparked interest in the player, who is believed by some to be keen on the idea of a new challenge after four fruitful years in Manchester.
