Report: Milan agree terms with Man City’s Bernardo Silva – both sides ‘confident’ over deal

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have agreed personal terms with Bernardo Silva, a report claims, and they are confident of reaching a deal.

English newspaper the Daily Star reported recently that the Rossoneri have set their sights on Bernardo Silva, who wants to leave Manchester City this summer. The idea in mind is a paid two-year loan with an obligation to buy included.

The loan fee would be around €17.5m, while the obligation would take the total amount up to around €53m. In other words, it would be a significant investment that certainly wouldn’t be in line with the rest of Milan’s signings in recent years.

However, such claims were refuted by the reliable Anto Vitiello of MilanNews on Sunday morning, as when asked about the rumour he stated that it would be a very difficult operation for Milan as the costs are very high.

According to the latest from Ekrem Konur, Bernardo Silva has an agreement with Milan on personal terms and conversations are continuing on the financial terms of the deal between the Diavolo and City. There is belief that both sides will reach an agreement.

We spoke to Konur, who added that Bernardo really wants to come to Milan and City have spent a lot of money so they want to sell players to raise some funds, with talks continuing positively.

  1. If this turns out to be true it would be a massive upgrade to Hakan and a genius masterclass from maldini and co. Silva is 27 or 28 a player which would be in his prime and he has a great vision

  2. If this happens, Maldini is going for a performance that only could happen during the prime days of the Berlusconi era of business transactions. It would be a crazy chess move.

  3. If it looks like bullshit and smells like bullshit, it probably is bullshit.

    Come on, we can barely find a deal for Kessie (separated by €3m) but now we are going to sign Silva on a loan deal with a salary of £7.8m or €9.1M?

  4. I think this can materialize. Until now the cheapest option (for this years accounts! 7.5 vs 10 for Vlasic). Given the fact Jorge Mendez is his agent, maybe they can agree to postpone the agents fee until the signing in 2 years and convince Man City to pay a part of his salary (maybe they want an option on Leao) or convince Silva to play for a lower fee in exchange for guaranteed CL playing time. He doens’t have that much options left for this season.

  5. Silva would be a great loss to City – one of the hardest working players, a outstanding first touch, strong and direct and very influential – and I think he’s undervalued at almost €60m. That said, his salary will be high and even a wealthy club such as Milan can’t match that and a high transfer fee. Would be a great move for him and Milan though. I think City need to sell and so I expect this will happen.

  6. If you believe that this is true and that this player could come to Milan…the team that does not pay players what they are worth, after 5million? This player currently makes around 8 million British pounds a year…so if you believe this story, then please believe that Milan has also agreed on personal terms with Santa Claus.

  7. Does anyone actually think this BS story is true and we are going to pay 50M for Silva lol. He makes like 12M a season. In what world does anyone think we are going to pay that kind of $$ this summer or think City will do us a favor and pay half his wages?? LOL. We are haggling over paying the heart and soul of our team Kessie and ppl actually think we would pay Silva more? LOL. Wake up fells this is a dream just like Vlasic, Ziyech etc…what happened to them or Yacine Adli? Kamara? Vlasic is going to West Ham for 30M cash. Why because they have $$ and we don’t lol. It’s nice to dream – and hell I hope I am wrong – but let’s be honest with ourselves and stop believing or hoping this will ever happen right now. Our best bet was Illic and he turned us down lol. This is our team. Let’s hope for the best. And no we don’t want Messias or the kid from Porto. Waste of $ IMO. Average players won’t tip the scales. Rather spend that 10M (if we actually do) on a blue chip player like Yacine or Kamara or he’ll even see if we can loan Ikone w option…
