Bernardo Silva wants to leave Manchester City but has rejected a potential move to Arsenal and would like to join Barcelona, according to Portuguese football journalist Felipe Dias.

“The information we have is that Bernardo has made it pretty clear that this is the right time for him to leave,” Dias told Transfer Talk.

“He did want to go to Barcelona. He wanted to live in Barcelona and play for Barcelona but Barcelona is going through such a big crisis that I don’t think they can afford a player like him at the moment.

“The latest we heard is that Bernardo has rejected a move to Arsenal and if that is the case I think rightly so because I don’t think that would be a step forward in his career.

“So, as it stands, Bernardo does want to leave City, but there’s a big question mark as far as where he will go."
