Kylian Mbappe has wished Bernardo Silva well after the playmaker swapped Monaco for Manchester City.

Silva moved to the Premier League in an estimated £43million transfer on Friday, leaving the Ligue 1 champions after helping them end a 17-year title drought.

Mbappe was another of the stars of a Monaco side which reached the Champions League semi-finals and he was saddened by the 22-year-old’s exit.

“Good luck my friend,” the France forward tweeted to Silva, accompanied by crying and love heart emojis.

Mbappe himself has been the subject of intense transfer speculation, with a host of Europe’s top clubs linked with making a world-record move for him.

Monaco defender Djibril Sidibe also paid tribute to the departing Portugal international, writing: “Good luck ‘chewing gum’! Proud to have played by your side.”

And Monaco themselves had kind words for Silva, thanking him for his service along with posting a video of some of his best moments for the club.

Silva spent a total of three seasons with Monaco, joining initially on loan and then permanently from Benfica.
