WHAT HAPPENED? As per Fabrizio Romano in his Daily Briefing, PSG and the Premier League champions discussed a swap deal for Bernardo Silva, which did not come to fruition this summer. It has been reported that the Parisiens offered Gianluigi Donnarumma and Marco Verratti in exchange for the Portuguese. However, City reportedly wanted Zaire-Emery included in the deal. In the end, Guardiola decided he would rather not part ways with Silva. However, the club will keep tabs on the 17-year-old for the future as they remain interested.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The 17-year-old is considered a prodigiously gifted young player with the potential to reach the top in the near future. He has already made 35 senior appearances for the club, and has been called up to the France Under-21 squad.
