Daily Star reports that Real Madrid is leading the race to sign Manchester City's 29-year-old midfielder Bernardo Silva this summer. Silva has been reported to be a huge target for FC Barcelona, and this could lead to a race between the two Spanish clubs this summer for Man City's midfielder. Sport reports that FC Barcelona president Joan Laporta wants Silva this summer to convince Xavi to potentially stay next season as the Spanish manager wants quality to be brought into the squad this summer.

Bernardo Silva's contract with Manchester City expires in the summer of 2026, and he has a release clause this summer worth 50 million pounds. In US dollars, the clause is worth $61.8 million. FC Barcelona plans to pay the clause in installments, perhaps, but with Real Madrid willing to sign him, the race for the player could be tight.

This season, Silva has made 42 appearances in all competitions with Manchester City. He has scored 11 goals and provided five assists. Silva has played 27 Premier League matches with six goals and four assists.

Silva has made 348 Manchester City appearances so far since he joined in 2017. He has scored a total of 66 goals and has provided 61 assists. Silva has won the Champions League, a FIFA Club World Cup, two FA Cups, four English league cups, two Community Shields, and five Premier League titles with Man City.
