'He'd be key' – Sergio Aguero admits he'd be 'shocked' if Man City allow Bernardo Silva to seal Barcelona transfer | The Sun

SERGIO AGUERO has admitted he would be shocked if Man City allowed Bernando Silva to leave for Barcelona.

Rumours are intensifying that Pep Guardiola could be set to allow another one of his major players to depart the Etihad this summer.

That follows the departures of Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko to Arsenal and Raheem Sterling to Chelsea.

Silva has been an integral part of the squad in recent years as City romped to record-breaking Premier League success.

Club legend Aguero, who played alongside the talented Portuguese playmaker before he departed the Etihad in 2021, cannot get his head around the rumours.

He told Stake: "Bernardo is a great player. He carries the ball, he sacrifices, has quality to assist and score goals and he can play in different positions.

"It would surprise me if City let him go. He is a player who contributes a lot every season, but everything is possible.

"If he finally arrives at Barca, then he will be someone who can be key to the possession game that Xavi likes."

Silva arrived in Manchester in 2017, six years after Aguero.

Both players have proven to be critical in helping Man City become one of the best teams in Europe.

Aguero left the club last year and after a very brief stint at Barcelona had to retire at the end of last year due to heart issues.

Silva, 28, is just the latest star to be linked to Barca's summer splurge and has previously refused to commit his future to Man City.

He told ESPN previously that he has no idea what will happen next.

He said: "I've always said that I'm happy here, but I have no idea what's going to happen.

"My relationship with the club is very honest. I've been open with them and they know what I want.

"If I stay, I'm very happy, and I will always respect this club and give all my best. If not, it's football and we'll just see what happens."
