Man City manager Guardiola fires back at Barcelona president Laporta about Bernardo Silva

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has ruled out selling Bernardo Silva to Barcelona this summer.

City and Barca will play a charity match in August to race funds for Guardiola's former assistant Juan Carlos Unzue, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2020.

At a press conference to confirm a friendly, Blaugrana president Joan Laporta commented on the rumours linking Silva with a move to Camp Nou.

Asked what his plans are for a game against Barca that will take place shortly after domestic campaigns across Europe have begun: "We will bring all our top players to Barcelona for Unzue's ALC charity match at Camp Nou."

Laporta replied quickly: "Bernardo Silva?"

Guardiola quipped back, stating: "Bernardo Silva... and 10 more."
