Man City Sign £60m Silva From Monaco

 

Premier League club Manchester City have made the first big signing for next season with the arrival of Bernardo Silva from Monaco.

"Manchester City are delighted to confirm Bernardo Silva will join the Club from Monaco on July 1," City announced on their official website on Friday.

"The Portuguese playmaker will arrive at the Etihad having just helped the French side to the Ligue 1 title and the Champions League semi-finals.

"He began his career at Benfica, where he impressed for their B side in the Segunda Division, and in the summer of 2013 he went to the Under 19 European Championships where he was named in the top 10 talents by UEFA reporters after helping Portugal to the semi-finals of the competition.

"He moved to Monaco in 2014 on a season-long loan move having made three appearances for Benfica's first team – but so impressive were his displays in France, the deal was made permanent six months into the agreement."

Silva, 22, joined City for a reported £60m fee.
