Between now and the end of the season, Real Madrid will have one thing on their mind: winning the domestic and European double. They are top of La Liga table and after winning El Clasico, this seems all but confirmed. Next up in the Champions League is Bayern Munich for the semifinal, which presents a great opportunity for Los Blancos.

However, Carlo Ancelotti will also have one eye on the summer transfer window. Needless to say, the whites are linked with some incredible players as they are expected to present a new-look and star-studded team to the Santiago Bernabeu next season.

Man City star chooses Barcelona over Real Madrid for one reason

One player who probably won't join that list of new signings is Bernardo Silva. The Portugal international who is currently playing for Manchester City is linked with a move away in the summer transfer window, to take on the next challenge in his already illustrious career.

It is believed that the best possible destination, in Bernardo Silva's eyes, is Barcelona. This is because he will link up with his former midfield partner Ilkay Gundogan, who also made the switch from Man City to Barcelona this season. Furthermore, his countrymen Joao Felix and Joao Cancelo are on loan at the Catalan club and could extend their current stays.

As per 90min, Bernardo Silva reached the decision between Real Madrid and Barcelona via one specific route: game time. Silva, understandably, sees a greater opportunity for game time at Barcelona than Real Madrid, which is understandable considering the potential new signings in the capital.

Bernardo Silva would have been a great signing for Real Madrid. Needless to say, he has flair and creativity in abundance. However, as rightly pointed out by the player, he would not be able to guarantee minutes in the football capital.
