Former West Ham United striker, Frank McAvennie, believes that Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva could part ways with the Premier League champions in January 2023.
Silva was heavily linked with a move away from Man City during the summer transfer window but somehow ended up staying put.
He joined Man City from Ligue 1 club Monaco in the summer of 2017.
When asked if a move could materialize for Silva in January, McAvennie told Football Insider that Man City manager, Pep Guardiola, would understand.
He said, “It depends whether he wants to go home or not. Maybe he’s had enough of the Premier League and wants to go somewhere that he’s not getting kicked. He is a wonderful talent, and I would hate to see him go because the Prem needs that.”
He added: “He is not going to sell him to another Premier League club. I can’t see that. He loves Man City and he thinks the world of Pep. I could see him going to Spain or Italy, maybe he wants to do that before he retires. It will be one of the big clubs that take him.
“He might try to leave in January. He might just feel that he has been there long enough, and he wants to move on and try something new. Pep Guardiola will understand that.”
