Bernardo Silva has revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo played an important role in his decision to join Manchester City

Bernardo Silva, who is teammates with Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani for Portugal, has revealed that the former Man United pair talked him into joining the Citizens.

The Portuguese playmaker joined Pep Guardiola at the Etihad in a £43 million move from Ligue 1 champions Monaco earlier this summer.

Talking to the press, Silva said: “Cristiano and Nani both told me that Manchester is a great city. Of course, they played for United, but they said that both clubs are amazing and that I would enjoy the Premier League because it’s the best league, the stadiums are always full, and the people love football.”

He continued: “They lived outside the centre, while I am staying in the city. Since I arrived I have ­realized that the city is great and that the people are really nice. The only thing is the weather. That has been a little bit of a shock, but the city is great – and so are the people. I like it a lot.”
