Real Madrid manager and club staff continue saying that the squad is closed and no one will leave or arrive to the team in the last hours of the transfer market. However, the offers for James Rodríguez and Isco continue to arrive at Bernabéu Stadium and Real Madrid have to be ready to look for a replacement if some of them end up out of the squad.
According to the French media le10sport, Real Madrid are interested in the Monaco midfielder Bernardo Silva. His agent is Jorge Mendes, the same as Cristiano’s, and Monaco could ask as much as €70M, according to this website.
The 22-year-old midfielder has started the third season at Mónaco after his transfer from Benfica. The French side paid €15.8M in 2015 after a season on loan and he has become one of the best players of the team. Actually, he already scored a very important goal this season against Guingamp in the opening game of Ligue One.
According to le10sport, Bernardo Silva is the chosen one if James Rodríguez finally decides to leave Real Madrid and accept one of the offers from PSG or Juventus. Isco, who has received an offer from Tottenham Hotspur, could be the other player leaving the club.
Bernardo Silva is a good midfielder who usually plays in the right. He has good shot and has scored 17 goals in only three seasons in France, a really high number considering he’s a midfielder. The proof is the wonderful goal Bernardo scored against Villarreal in the Champions League preview at El Madrigal.
Real Madrid are not the only team interested in Bernardo Silva. City rivals Atlético de Madrid have also shown interest in signing the young Portuguese midfielder who could leave Monaco before the end of the transfer window and look for a club with higher expectations.
