Bernardo Silva was the star of the show as Manchester City secured their place in the Champions League final with a commanding 4-0 victory over Real Madrid in the semi-final second leg.

The Portuguese playmaker’s brace not only helped his team progress to the final, but also served as a reminder to Barcelona of what they missed out on when they held talks with Silva last summer about a possible move to the Camp Nou. With reports linking him with a departure from Man City in the upcoming transfer window, Silva’s recent comments about finding playing for the club boring have only fueled speculation about his future. However, on Wednesday night, the 28-year-old was anything but bored as he helped tear apart Real Madrid, putting City up 2-0 at half-time. Silva will now be hoping to secure his maiden Champions League title, having been on the losing side in City’s only previous final appearance against Chelsea two years ago.

Silva a better signing than Messi?

Comparing Bernardo Silva to Lionel Messi is a difficult task, as they are two very different players with different styles, strengths, and abilities. While SilvaManchester City‘s victory over Real Madrid, it’s important to remember that Messi has been one of the best players in the world for over a decade, winning numerous individual awards and helping Barcelona to a multitude of domestic and international titles.

Furthermore, Messi’s status as a free agent this summer has sparked interest from several top clubs, and Barcelona remains a strong contender to re-sign him. While Silva may be a younger and potentially more affordable option for the long-term, it’s unclear whether he would be able to replicate Messi’s impact on the pitch and his status as a global football icon. Ultimately, the decision on whether to pursue Silva or Messi would depend on Barcelona’s priorities, financial situation, and long-term vision for the club.
