Although Paris Saint-Germain and Al Hilal have made approaches to the 28-year-old, who has been on Barcelona's radar for quite some time, it has been reported that Barcelona is his preferred move if he decides to leave City.

The administration of the Bluagrana is aware of Xavi's continued admiration for the player and his conviction that the Portuguese star will only raise the team's creative reputation.

Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, has now acknowledged that he would never obstruct a player from leaving. But anyone who attempts to acquire Silva will face stiff demands from City, specifically a cost of roughly €80 million.

Despite the fact that Silva himself has an ambition of dressing as a Barça player, Barcelona is not in a position to offer that kind of sum given their current financial situation. 

To make matters worse, according to NEWSNOW, Manchester City is prepared to offer him a new deal that would raise his salary to €18 million per season in order to keep him off Barcelona's books. 

The 28-year-old is still weighing his alternatives at this time, and he is aware that if he does decide to go, he will only join a squad that is willing to pay €80 million.

For what it's worth, Al Hilal of Saudi Arabia are reportedly interested in signing him and may pay him up to €30 million every season.

The player, however, prefers to remain in Europe because he is aware that Barcelona has him as their top priority.

However, the Blaugrana are unable to cover his transfer fee or match Manchester City's annual salary offer of €18 million.

However, the player's desire to wear the Barcelona jersey may be crucial, even though the La Liga winners will need to quickly approve certain sales if they hope to sign Silva.
