Manchester City determined to keep Bernardo Silva away from Barcelona

Bernardo Silva says he wants to return to Benfica because he did not get the chance to break into the first-team during his time at the club.

Manchester City are determined to hold onto Bernardo Silva this summer.

The Portugal midfielder is attracting interest from fallen Spanish giants Barcelona.

Bernardo has battled for first-choice status this season, which has led to talk he could be tempted away.

However, Bleacher Report says both City and Bernardo are happy with the relationship and are eager to continue.

It has been suggested Barca would be willing to include Nelson Semedo in a cash-plus-player swap proposal.
