Barcelona president, Joan Laporta, has identified Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva as the Premier League star he admires.
Laporta said Silva is a “very good player”, amid speculation Barcelona want to sign the midfielder this summer.
Speaking with CBS Sports, Laporta said, “Silva is a very good player. I have to respect, though, that he belongs to Manchester City.
“I have some friends there, like Pep Guardiola, Tixi Bergstein and Khaldoon Al Mubarak.
“There are a lot of people I know.”
