The Portuguese star midfielder wants to head for the exit door. Sport Witness is reporting that Atletico Madrid is the likely destination as Barcelona, his other suitor, undergo financial turmoil.

The fee is reported at 40-50 million euros which is a pretty good deal for a player who wants out.

Bernardo is a mercurial player and he has given his all to the club so I do believe giving him his wish to depart is the right move. In would come Jack Grealish and maybe another player. More than enough to make up for it.

Atletico will want to pay less but City should stick to their guns and take nothing less than 40m Euros.

It will be interesting to see how this develops as City’s transfer business is underway something heavy with not a whole lot of time left in the window.

Thoughts on Bernardo’s departure? Is the fee right?
