Bernardo Silva has extended his contract with Manchester City by one year, keeping him with the team through 2026.
The previous contract for the midfielder from Portugal was set to expire in 2025.
The 29-year-old Silva has been associated with Barcelona over the past two summers, and there has also been talk of interest from Al-Hilal and Paris St. Germain.
Since joining the team in May 2017, Silva has had a role in each of City’s five Premier League championship victories.
Bernardo says he is staying put at City because it “gives me that opportunity to keep winning”.
“I’ve had six incredible years at Manchester City and I’m delighted to extend my time here,” Silva, who had been attracting interest from Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain this summer, said.
“Winning the treble last season was extremely special and it’s exciting to be part of a squad where there is such a hunger and passion
“I love the manager, my team-mates and the fans and hope we can share even more great memories in the coming years.”
Although Sofyan Amrabat and Manchester United have reached personal terms on a transfer to Old Trafford, the club has not yet made a proposal for the midfielder.
This is as a result of United’s inability to sell players like Donny van de Beek and Scott McTominay.
The club is treading a fine line when it comes to Financial Fair Play, therefore they can’t approve any more arrivals until they do.
