Bernardo Silva could have joined Barcelona

Spanish media outlet El Mundo Deportivo claims that Monaco hotshot Bernardo Silva was close to joining Barcelona last summer.

The Portuguese winger is now being mentioned as a top target for the Catalans and few other high-profile clubs, but the La Liga side had a chance to secure his signature at a reasonable price at the end of last season.

Namely, Barcelona were ready to make a move on Bernardo Silva if Arda Turan had completed a proposed move to China.

But, with the Turkish footballer ultimately staying at Camp Nou, the Catalans opted against pursuing their interest in the Portugal starlet.

That could prove a bad decision considering that Bernardo Silva’s price has increased a great deal this season, as he is now regarded as one of Europe’s most sought-after footballers.

The 22-year-old will attempt to help Monaco overturn a two-goal deficit in the Champions League tie against Man City, with the Principality club priced at 4/1 to qualify to the quarter-finals.
