Al Hilal ‘offer to treble Bernardo Silva salary’ and more Man City transfer rumours

A look at the latest Manchester City transfer news and gossip amid continued uncertainty over Bernardo Silva’s future at the club.

Manchester City star Bernardo Silva is reportedly being offered an amount three times his current salary by Saudi Pro League side Al Hilal.

Several big-name stars are making the move over to Saudi Arabia this summer and Bernardo, according to ESPN, has had a £500k-a-week proposal put to him. The Portugal international has two years left on his contract at the Etihad Stadium, but City will sanction a sale should they receive a bid deemed acceptable.

City’s number 20 is said to be keen on exploring a new challenge, just like fellow midfielder Ilkay Gundogan – who has signed for La Liga giants Barcelona. The Spanish side are reportedly keen on Bernardo too, as are Paris Saint-Germain. ESPN claim that Bernardo’s ‘preference’ is to keep playing in Europe, but that he has not ruled out a move to the Middle East.

Elsewhere, Morgan Rogers is reportedly heading to Middlesbrough on loan. The City youngster spent time at Blackpool last season, having previously had loan spells with AFC Bournemouth and Lincoln City. At Blackpool, Rogers scored once in his 20 appearances.

The 20-year-old is now seemingly wanted by Boro, who are looking to bounce back from last season’s play-off heartache and go one better under Michael Carrick’s management.

Rogers joined up with City in 2019 from West Bromwich Albion and impressed for the under-23s – which led to plenty of loan interest from Football League clubs. He never featured for the first team, but provided 14 goal contributions in 37 outings. Middlesbrough have been busy already this summer, signing Ray van den Berg from PEC Zwolle and Alex Gilbert from Brentford B.
