The coach warns that the midfielder's situation will not change soon and that on the day of the friendly against Barça he will play as a blue.
Pep Guardiola has calmed down talks that Bernardo Silva will soon sign for FC Barcelona in a conversation with Juan Carlos Unzué on the programme El Matí de Catalunya Ràdio. The radio station brought the two together to talk about the friendly match on the 24th at Camp Nou to raise funds for ALS research, a disease that the former goalkeeping coach suffers from.
Guardiola warned that one should not expect the situation of the Portuguese midfielder to change anytime soon. "On Wednesday you will see him play! Of course, you will! And what is certain is that he will do it with us, with City," he said. As we have been reporting, the English club do not intend to make it easy for anyone to sign Bernardo Silva, who remains a key player for the sky blues. They have slapped a price tag of 100 million euros on the Portuguese.
Guardiola is very much looking forward to the match and to returning to his home, FC Barcelona, for such a noble cause as the fight against a very tough illness. "It's a gift to return to the Camp Nou to play a charity match to fight against ALS," he said. The player from Santpedor also had words of praise for the work that Unzué has been doing since he was diagnosed with the disease. "Life has given him a punch and every time he gets up. With his gestures and actions he helps a lot of people".
