A move for Lucas Paqueta appeared to be moving forward until the Football Association opened an investigation into the player for possible betting rule violations, according to BBC Sport. Pep Guardiola’s team defeated Sevilla in the UEFA Super Cup on penalties to add another trophy to a crowded trophy cabinet.
Additionally, it was announced that Kevin de Bruyne will miss a few months of action due to a recurrence of the injury he sustained in the Champions League final at the tail end of the previous campaign.
With all of that in mind, some good news would undoubtedly benefit the club and its supporters.
Fabrizio Romano, a sports journalist for Sky Sports, thankfully believes that this may be imminent.
According to him, Bernardo Silva will sign a new contract with Man City that will keep him there through June 2026.
“I told you a few days ago that everything was agreed, and I can confirm that we’re just waiting for them to put pen to paper, and next week appears to be the best moment to make it happen for Bernardo Silva.”
Knowing that one of Manchester City’s finest players would re-sign with the club will undoubtedly cheer everyone up after it was thought that a transfer to Barcelona was the player’s desire.
As a result, Guardiola will appear to have a stable midfield even without de Bruyne.
Silva’s inventiveness has contributed just as much to Pep’s grand scheme as Erling Haaland’s goals, Ederson’s distribution and saves, and de Bruyne’s amazing passing range.
