Atletico Madrid were keen on Manchester City attacker Bernardo Silva last summer.

The Portugal international sought to leave City, as confirmed by manager Pep Guardiola, but ended up remaining as the market shut a fortnight ago.

Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reports Bernardo was a serious option for Atletico.

He explained, "Bernardo Silva was on the Atlético list this summer, but he was not the first name.

"The priority has always been Antoine Griezmann."
