Bernado Silva's future at the Etihad is fraught with uncertainty. For the past two summers, the Portuguese attacking genius has been a target for Barcelona, who have publicly stated their desire to sign him.
If Barcelona comes knocking again in 2023, the Cityzens may have to give in to the pressure and let him go. This thought has prompted Pep Guardiola to prepare for Silva's departure by identifying his replacement. Mykhailo Mudryk of Shakter Donetsk has reportedly been identified as a player who could fill Bernado Silva's large shoes at the Etihad.
While Pep believes he can entice the winger to join his Manchester City project, Mikel Arteta is confident in signing him to complement Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli. Arteta may not be concerned about City's interest because Mudryk has previously expressed interest in joining Arsenal because they excite him.
"As alluded to above, Mudryk is in hot demand in the transfer market, with Premier League sides Newcastle United and Manchester City both expressing their interest in signing the Shakhtar Donetsk winger, but Arsenal appears to be leading the way to sign the young Ukrainian," writes the Hard Tackle.
