Bernardo Silva says he is open to making his return to Benfica after leaving them too soon.

Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva has kept the door open for his exit from the club after expressing his desire to reunite with his boyhood club Benfica.

Rising through the ranks to make a place for himself in the first team, Bernardo Silva won a treble with Benfica in 2014.

After spending a couple of years away on loan, the Portuguese finally joined Man City in 2017 for €50 million. Since then, he has become a key player in Pep Guardiola’s team.

Recently, Manchester City were punished by UEFA for violating the Financial Fair Play regulations. As a part of the punishment, they will not be allowed to compete in the Champions League for the next two seasons.

Man City’s ban has started to raise questions on the future of some of their important players. And recently, Bernardo Silva became the first one to drop a transfer hint away from the club.

“I have already said it several times. I have this emptiness of having left a little early. So, I think I will come back,” he told Eleven Sports as reported by Record.

“If they want me there, I think I will come back.”
