Portuguese great Futre: Man City midfielder Bernardo Silva can win Ballon d'Or

Portuguese great Paulo Futre believes Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva can win the Ballon d'Or.

The popular 24-year-old played 51 times in all competitions last season, scoring 13 times with 14 assists, and is contracted at City until 2025.

According to Futre, Bernardo's importance to City will help him make the step up to become the next best player in the world.

He told Omnisport: “I think Bernardo will be the next star, or he will be when Ronaldo and Messi start to decline.

“I think Bernardo will be one of those who will be ready to win the Ballon d'Or, because he is a player with a lot of responsibility in a great team like Manchester City."
