The Manchester City midfielder starred in Portugal's win over Czech Republic
Barça coach Xavi is a big fan but a deal is not easy because of the club's finances
Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva said he cannot comment on speculation he will sign for Barcelona this summer after another sublime performance for Portugal.
Silva was the star of the show as Portugal beat Czech Republic 2-0 to move clear at the top of Spain's UEFA Nations League group with seven points from three games.
After the match, he was asked about Barça's potential interest and the possibility of him making the move to Camp Nou ahead of next season.
"Unfortunately I can't say anything," he said. "I am focused on the national team. When the season ends, we will see what happens."
Per the latest reports, he would like to sign for Barça, but he will not put pressure on City to let him leave.
This past season he played 50 games for Pep Guardiola's side, scoring 13 goals and setting up seven during almost 4,000 minutes on the pitch.
Barça coach Xavi Hernandez would love to have him on his team, but the club's delicate financial situation could impede their chances of landing the talented Portugal international.
