​Man City star Bernardo Silva: I'd love to play with Barcelona star Messi

Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva has admitted he would love to play with Lionel Messi one day.

The Portuguese is one of City's most effective players under Pep Guardiola in the past 18 months.

And reports have linked Messi with a move away from Barcelona in the summer.

If he were to come to City, Silva would be delighted to have him.

When asked by reporters, Silva replied: "Of course [would like to play with Messi].

"I play with Cristiano in the national team and if I played with Messi, being able to say that I played with the best in history would be a pleasure.

"But it is a complicated matter. At City or in Barca it will be welcome."
