With Barcelona’s financial situation becoming more unstable as reports emerged that some top players would be asked to reduce their wage bills to enable the club register new arrivals.
The Blaugrana has done excellently well in the transfer market this summer but are faced with the challenge of registering the arrivals with La Liga next season.
They are also interested in Manchester City midfielder, Bernardo Silva, but the financial situation is the only restricting factor. The Portuguese midfielder has reportedly been keen to move to La Liga, although the hypothetical move can only take place in the event of Frenkie de Jong being sold.
However a new factor may have entered the equation. Mundo Deportivo reference multiple sources which say that Paris Saint-Germain are interested in Silva too. Sporting Advisor and compatriot Luis Campos is a big admirer of Silva, having brought him to AS Monaco back in 2014.
If Silva is interested in a move to Paris and Manchester City are willing to do business, Barcelona may find themselves on the outside looking in. While they are dependent on a de Jong deal being done first, PSG have the resources to move swiftly and likely present a larger financial package to Silva.
