Man City are ready to rocket Bernardo Silva alongside the highest earners in their history to keep him at the Etihad.
It would see his wages almost double to around £300,000-a-week.
And Bernardo would join Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling at the top of City’s pay scale.
Bernardo has four years left on his deal.
And Man City boss Pep Guardiola admitted the Portuguese forward’s form has been so impressive that he is undroppable.
The star spoke to Guardiola about leaving last summer when City signed Jack Grealish.
And he was expected to miss out for the £100million new boy.
Yet Bernardo, 27, has not only nailed down a regular slot — but has been far and away their player of the year so far.
