A press report said on Sunday, Real Madrid are aiming for a new player from Manchester City after Ibrahim Diaz joined the club in January, a newspaper report said on Sunday.
The Daily Mail newspaper said Real were planning to sign Bernardo Silva, the Manchester City playmaker.
Real Madrid believe that Bernardo Silva will be more creative in the team’s line of attack in the coming period, given his impressive showing with City this season.

The Portuguese will have three and a half years in contract with Manchester City, and the latter will now have to enter into negotiations to renew and improve Silva’s contract for fear of Real’s temptations.
