Times Sport: €70m Man City playmaker snubbed Milan move after Mendes presented offer

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan made an offer for Bernardo Silva last week but the player was not interested in the move, according to a report.

Ekrem Konur reported last week that the Portugal international had an agreement with Milan on personal terms and conversations are continuing on the financial terms of the deal between the Diavolo and City. Journalist Salvatore Cantone also reported that Milan are trying for Silva.

Times Sport journalist Paul Hirst (via MilanNews) has revealed a market background related to Bernardo Silva and Milan, confirming that the Rossoneri did indeed make an offer to the player last week.

This was brought to the Portuguese international by his agent Jorge Mendes, but apparently the midfielder was not interested in a possible transfer to the Rossoneri. That is why he is now likely to remain at Manchester City with no obvious destination having emerged for the player. He joined from Monaco back in 2017 in a deal worth a potential €70m (via Wiki).

    Not surprised. He’d be moving from one of 3-4 clubs favored to win the CL this season to one that is nowhere near ready to challenge for that. I can’t fault him for that. Hopefully we will be more of an option for players like this in a couple of seasons. On to the next one.

      That’s your own version.

      There are players who are not willing to sit on bench and so they usually join a team where they can get more playing time. Anyhow, I don’t think he was ever in our radar as he would have been a costly operation.

    This Turkish journalist is a liar and fabricates stories. Milan never offered money to Silva nor did they plan to buy that player at all.Ekrem Konur is a liar and Milan has already launched an investigation against this journalist and his fake news..
    Fans must not fall for this kind of news and it would be desirable that everything that is written TURKIN EKREM DO NOT READ BECAUSE EVERYTHING IS A LIE
