Bernardo Silva set for Manchester City arrival

Bernardo Silva will take part in his first Manchester City training session later on Monday (07.31.17) after finally arriving in England.

The 22-year-old Portuguese international midfielder is also due to meet with Pep Guardiola for the first time since agreeing his $56.43 million switch from Monaco in early June, as the club beat local rivals Manchester United to his coveted signature.

Bernardo was handed extended leave by City after taking part in the Confederations Cup and will be assessed first by the club's medical staff.

It's understood the player is being handed a specially devised training scheduled to bring him up to speed with the rest of his team-mates, who arrived back from their successful pre-season tour of the United States on Sunday.

City face fellow Premier League side West Ham United in a friendly this coming Friday (08.04.17) in Reykjavik, Iceland, and Bernardo could even make his bow if the club's conditioning coaches give the green light.

Meanwhile, the Manchester giants expect to hear in the next 24 hours that midfielder Fernando's $6.56 million switch to Galatasaray has gone through without a hitch.
