Manchester City fans are in shock as 'untouchable' Bernardo Silva is linked with transfer
Manchester City supporters oppose a Bernardo Silva transfer this summer as reports emerge the Portuguese international could leave the club.
The Telegraph report that the City playmaker could be sold as part of a club rebuild in the transfer window.
This could be difficult, though, as Silva has multiple years left remaining on his current deal with the Manchester-based club.
An underwhelming season for Silva
Indeed, the 26-year-old midfielder had an underwhelming season. The former AS Monaco star scored just five goals in all competitions for City, assisting a further nine.
As well as his goal contribution numbers, Silva also only managed 24 starts in the Premier League. The Portuguese star started the UEFA Champions League final, though.
City fans appose Bernardo Silva transfer
Although Silva’s impact for City this campaign has been lower than most, supporters on social media were begging the club to keep hold of the midfielder this summer.
Here’s what some City fans had to say on Twitter about Silva potentially leaving.
Id sell anyone even KDB and Foden over Bernardo.— Tharco (@tharco) June 2, 2021
Bernardo silva is the most underrated player in the world. He always makes up for the team's deficiencies. He should definitely stay in the team.— Paa (@EnverPaa000) June 2, 2021
No one can buy him even if we wanted to sell. Atleast 150M for him considering players like Dembele, Coutinho went for those kinda money. He's also just entering his prime + has many years left in his contract. He's Pep's pet, so he's pretty much untouchable as long as Pep's here— . (@RDragron7) June 3, 2021

No way he should leave get sterling gone and keep Bernardo— NB⚽️ (@NathanBaker110) June 2, 2021
If sell him we will regret it big time. Bernardo is a phenomenal footballer. Please keep him.— IC 🇩🇿 (@AlgerianPapi) June 3, 2021
Silva has been a major first-team player since arriving from Monaco in 2017. The playmaker has made over 200 appearances for City.
