Bernardo Silva is very close to singing for Manchester City, after reported to have a medical with Manchester based club.
Silva was one of the best players in Monaco this season, so its no wonder that big clubs want to sign him.
It looks like City has won the battle, with all major sport news reporting the deal.
Obviously, twitter also joined in the show!

James Rodriguez is still better than Bernardo Silva.
Much better end product. Much better goal scorer. More experienced. Cheaper as well.

Silva suits a Guardiola team so well. City well stocked in his position, but a superb signing nonetheless. Fair play.

if Silva is worth €70M then Dybala can’t go for a penny less than €300M.

So, this transfer has made a lot of City fans quite happy, while a lot of United fans unhappy.
Its hard to say that its a perfect signing for Manchester City, but the player does represent a young (expensive) alternative to an aging David Silva.
Bernardo also represents a first player of Pep’s (new) revolution at City. Have a feeling that there are many more to come!
