SERGIO AGUERO has admitted he would be shocked if Man City allowed Bernando Silva to join Barcelona.
Rumors are mounting that Pep Guardiola could allow another of his key players to leave the Etihad this summer.
Silva has been an integral part of the squad in recent years as City rose to record-breaking Premier League success.
Club legend Aguero, who played alongside the talented Spaniard before leaving Etihad in 2021, can’t shake the rumours.
He told Stake: “Bernardo is a great player. He carries the ball, he sacrifices, has quality to help and score goals and he can play in different positions.
“I would be surprised if City let him go. He’s a player who brings in a lot every season, but anything is possible.
“When he finally comes to Barca then he will be someone who can be the key to the possession game that Xavi likes.”
Silva joined Manchester in 2017, six years after Agüero.
Both players have proven crucial in helping Man City become one of the best teams in Europe.
Aguero left the club last year and was forced to retire after a very short stint at Barcelona late last year due to heart problems.

Silva, 28, is just the latest star to be linked with Barca’s summer glory and has previously refused to cede his future to Man City.
He previously told ESPN that he had no idea what was going to happen next.
He said: “I’ve always said I’m happy here, but I have no idea what’s going to happen.
“My relationship with the club is very honest. I’ve been open with them and they know what I want.
“If I stay I’ll be very happy and will always respect this club and do my best. If not, it’s football and we’ll see what happens.”
