Arsenal were interested in signing Bernado Silva, who was rumored to have asked to leave Manchester City. Silva's move would have earned him quality game time, something he is tipped to have less of as the season progresses, considering Pep may choose to play the likes of Kevin Debruyne and Phil Foden in front of him.
With this cloud hanging over Silva's future, Guardiola was asked indirectly about Silva's future this weekend, and his response should come as welcome news to Arsenal fans. This was his witty response to Silva's future. He said this after Leicester's 1-0 win, thanks to Silva's goal, "...It’s not just their qualities as players but also their incredible work ethic." [Silva] is playing well and we are happy that he stayed. We’ll see what happens in the future."
Pep Guardiola's response is a clear indication that he is willing to let Bernado Silva leave, with Arsenal being one of the major clubs linked with a move for him. Although qualifying for European football will be crucial for Bernado Silva to join Arsenal, his previous coaching relationship with Mikel Arteta may act as a catalyst for Arteta bringing him in as his final marquee signing as part of his rebuilding process.(source: Football London)
