Man City boss Guardiola laughs off Barcelona plans for Bernardo

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has warned Barcelona off Bernardo Silva.

Bernardo was keen to quit the Etihad last summer in order to move closer to his homeland so a switch to the Nou Camp could appeal to him.

However, Barca's financial problems are well documented and Guardiola hinted as much when asked about a possible move for one of his key men.

He said with a smile; “They will find it difficult.

“Everyone knows that if the situation isn't good you can't make big signings.

“I hope everything goes well for them but with the situation they have they cannot do great things.

“There are moments in history when everyone has to accept it."
