Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva has opened up on his future at the club amid persistent links to Barcelona.

The Portugal international asked to leave Manchester City last summer, but having failed to secure a move, produced a fine string of performances as Pep Guardiola’s side went on to retain the title.

The 28-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to Barcelona this summer, with some reports in Spain suggesting a deal had been agreed, though it seems as though they are premature with City having since dismissed the speculation.

Silva has suggested that he would like to move on, but insisted he is full of respect for the clubs position and is ‘happy’ at the Etihad.

“I’ve always said that I’m happy here, but I have no idea what’s going to happen,” he told ESPN. “We’ll see, honestly. My relationship with the club is very honest.

“I’ve been open with them and they know what I want. If I stay, I’m very happy, and I will always respect this club and give all my best. If not, it’s football and we’ll just see what happens.

“They always say to all of us that if you’re not happy, you can go. Of course, they are in business and they want the right amount of money for letting us go, but personally it’s a relationship with the club that is very respectful. They have always been honest with me and I have always been honest with them.

“As I said, I will always respect my relationship with Man City, with the fans, with the staff, with my teammates, so whatever happens, happens, and for sure, it will happen in a very respectful way.”
