Al Hilal woo Bernardo Silva £500,000-a-week carrot

Bernardo Silva is being offered three times his Manchester City salary to move to Saudi Pro League side Al Hilal.

Silva earns around £150,000-a-week ($191,205) at the Etihad Stadium but he is being tempted to move to Saudi Arabia with a deal worth closer to £500,000-a-week.

Silva is open to finding a new challenge this summer after six years at City. Sources have told ESPN that his preference is to stay in Europe but he has not yet ruled out joining Ruben Neves and Kalidou Koulibaly at Al Hilal.

Silva has two years left on his contract and City will demand a significant fee before allowing him to leave, but that’s unlikely to be a problem for the Saudi Pro League side.

Bernardo Silva made 34 appearances for Manchester City in the Premier League last season, scoring 4 goals and making 6 assists.

The Saudi club, according to sources, met again with Silva’s representatives last week.

Manager Pep Guardiola is a huge admirer of the Portugal international but sources have told ESPN that the club won’t stand in his way if he decides to leave and they receive an acceptable bid. Silva only recently wedded model Ines Tomaz in his Portugal.
