Guardiola stressed he wants Bernardo Silva to stay at City

Some sources believe that the Portuguese star plans a move to Camp Nou.

Pep Guardiola has reiterated that he is optimistic about keeping

Bernardo Silva

and also announced the end of transfers for his team in the current window.

Silva is rumored to be close to joining Guardiola's former club


after five years at the Etihad Stadium. Guardiola made it clear once again that he wants the playmaker to stay at the club, although there are no guarantees.

The Spanish manager said:

"He's our player and he knows our wishes, me as a manager and even his mates. What is going to happen? I don't know."

Asked if the transfer window is finished for City, Pep replied:

"Apparently, yeah. If someone moves on or there is a problem we don't expect, then we'll see."

In the summer transfer window,


signed Erling Haaland, Kalvin Phillips, Julian Alvarez and Sergio Gomez, while Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho, Raheem Sterling and Oleksandr Zinchenko left the club.
