Portuguese footballer Bernardo Silva has declared his desire to return to Portugal to continue his career in the near future, admitting that if given the chance to do so within a year or two – again for Benfica – he would consume this change.
“I’ll be honest, if I could go back to Portugal in a year or two, I would. Yeah [ndr: sempre para o Benfica]. Not only for the professional side, because I would like to play for Benfica one day, but because I miss my family, life in Portugal. I lived abroad for many years,” he said, speaking to Channel 11, in an excerpt from an interview that aired Thursday night.
The 27-year-old winger has a contract with Manchester City until 2025. He has been in England since 2017 and, before City, played for Monaco for three seasons, from 2014 to 2017.
“I have to talk to the club, see what my options are. As my contract runs out, I will determine in the next few years whether to renew another year or not. If I go to another side and, from there, I know when my last contract will be and when my last contract abroad will end and when I am free, I can go to Portugal,” he said. he still stated. “Of course, I wish it wasn’t too late,” added the Benfica-trained Portuguese international.
