Ruben Dias has now responded to the possibility of Bernardo Silva leaving Manchester City.

Speaking to Portuguese outlet Record, the 26-year-old was quizzed about the prospect of the £43 million (Telegraph) man leaving City.

Ruben Dias gave his honest assessment of Bernardo Silva departing Manchester City once and for all.

Branded as ‘smart’ by Kevin De Bruyne, it was reported on Monday that Barcelona were ‘upset’ with the Sky Blues for blocking the former AS Monaco midfielder’s move to Catalonia.

Since the summer of 2020, the five-time Premier League winner has been heavily linked with an exit from the Etihad Stadium until he decided to extend his contract until 2026 this summer.

Now, Ruben Dias has given his honest admission about Bernardo Silva potentially leaving Manchester City.

“Only the future will tell and I don’t think this is the right time for that”, he said whilst being away on international duty.

Of course, the ex-Benfica defender did not directly address the rumours as it seems like the versatile attacker is unlikely to leave the club until potentially next summer.

Bernardo should stay put at Manchester City

Playing alongside some of the best players in the world such as Ruben Dias, under arguably the greatest manager of all time in Pep Guardiola and a truly historic team in Manchester City, one questions why Bernardo Silva would eye an exit in the first place.

Sure, perhaps a change of scenery after spending six years in Manchester could well tempt the Portuguese midfielder.

However, one only gets one career and the chance to spend it at a club whose dynasty does not look like it is set to stop anytime soon is an opportunity not many players get.

Considering how much Bernardo Silva is valued and adored by Manchester City and their fans, he would be better-placed to simply prolong his spell at the club and continue to win silverware.
