After eliminating Manchester City from the Champions League, Real Madrid has chosen which player from the team to sign this summer.

After two exciting games that resulted in a 4-4 aggregate score in their quarterfinal match, Los Blancos overcame City on penalties.

It keeps Guardiola’s team from winning the FA Cup and the Premier League in consecutive years, as well as the chance to win two trebles in a row.

It was always going to be close between the two clubs that are now regarded as the greatest in Europe, and 14-time winners Madrid were the ones who just managed to overcome.

Since then, the Spanish powerhouses have been connected to a number of City’s best players, and a recent article in The Daily Star claims that they are now first in line for playmaker Bernardo Silva.

The £50 million release clause in the Portuguese international’s contract is rumored to have drawn serious interest from the best clubs in Europe.

Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and Madrid are all keeping an eye on the issue.

But according to the story, if he were to depart, Spain would be his first choice.

The 29-year-old has played against Madrid for the last three years, so Carlo Ancelotti and the team are familiar with him.

Even though he terribly missed a penalty in the quarterfinal shootout, his performances seem to have drawn attention.

Silva has contributed significantly to City’s success under Guardiola, therefore his departure would be felt deeply.

After winning the French championship with Monaco, a team he also assisted in leading to the Champions League semifinals, he relocated to Manchester back in 2017.

The playmaker acknowledged at the time that he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to play for Guardiola.

It has paid off since ever since he arrived, he has won every prize imaginable. Thus, perhaps now is a suitable moment for a fresh challenge.
