Silva undoubtedly played a vital role in his team, Manchester City’s triumph in the English league last season plus taking the same spirit to the national side helping Portugal win the UEFA Nations League and played a part in the final assisting two goals.
Not forgetting, Silva was voted City’s Player of the Season by supporters as a result of his performances.
After Messi and Ronaldo fall out of the spotlight, Bernardo Silva is being to tipped to become the next leading star in world football by Futre who earned 41 caps for Portugal and represented the likes of Porto, Atletico Madrid and AC Milan at club level.
He said; “I think Bernardo will be the next star, or he will be when Ronaldo and Messi start to decline.
“I think Bernardo will be one of those who will be ready to win the Ballon d’Or, because he is a player with a lot of responsibility in a great team like Manchester City.
“He will continue to grow and in two or three years, when Messi and Cristiano retire, I think he can be one of the big favourites to win the Ballon d’Or.”
