Bernardo Silva renewed his contract with Manchester City on Wednesday to definitively put to rest the speculation about his possible move to Paris Saint-Germain this season.
The 29-year-old Portuguese midfielder has extended his contract by one year, now tied up until the end of the 2025-26 season, City said in a statement.
Silva has won five English Premier League titles and in June he finally won the Champions League with City after arriving from Monaco in 2017. City completed the treble of titles in the 2022-23 season, consecrating themselves in the Premier.
“I have spent an incredible six years at Manchester City and I am delighted to extend my contract,” Silva said in a statement released by the club. “Winning the treble last season was extremely special. It’s exciting to be part of a team where there is so much hunger and passion.”
“Success makes you want more and more. This club gives me the opportunity to continue winning”, he added.
At Monaco, Silva was a teammate of Kylian on the team that won the French league title and reached the Champions League semifinals also left that summer — heading to PSG.
French newspaper Le Parisien reported on Wednesday that a Manchester-Paris transfer was aborted after City manager Pep Guardiola refused to lose Silva when Riyad Mahrez, another creative player, left for the Saudi Arabian league.
