Bernardo Silva has revealed how much he thinks he’s worth in the transfer market, he’s miles off his actual value

Bernardo Silva has revealed how much he thinks he’s worth in the transfer market – he’s way off his actual valuation.

Silva has been a consistent performer for Manchester City ever since his £43.5 million transfer from AS Monaco in 2017.

He’s made over 300 appearances for the Blues and has helped his side to Premier League and Champions League glory.

The 29-year-old is in his seventh season at the Etihad outfit but a move away from the club has been mooted.

Barcelona have been linked with the star player’s services, having pursued him last summer.

Not to mention a return to Portugal with Benfica. When discussing a move back to his old side, he put a price tag on his head.

Though he’s miles off his actual valuation.

Silva valued himself at ‘over €50 million (£40 million)’ – but his current market value stands at a whopping €80 million (£69 million), according toTransfermarkt.

Asked about a return to Benfica byA Bola, Silva said: “I’ve never hidden that one day I want to go back, so of course I do. Now, we’ll see over time what’s possible and it’s not worth talking about this all the time, because people get tired… Let’s see.”

He added: “You can, now there are contractual issues that have to be respected and… you have to live the reality, that Portuguese football at a financial level cannot compete with English, Spanish or even German and French clubs, therefore…

“For example, even if I wanted to go to Benfica at the moment it was totally impossible because Manchester City is asking for a lot of money for a transfer for me. In the last four or five years I have been a player valued at over 50 million euros and it is impossible for a Portuguese club to pay that kind of value. People have to be a little realistic.”
