Feyenoord Transfermarkt, which is usually close to the fire, reports that Bernardo Silva is back in Rotterdam and that he will sign his contract in De Kuip tomorrow. Feyenoord does not have to pay a transfer fee for the 19-year-old talent, who will initially join the U21 team led by trainer Rini Coolen. Bernardo Silva, not to be confused with his Manchester City namesake, is ‘a direct reinforcement’ for Coolen.
Trainer Dick Advocaat has been hoping for reinforcements for the first team for some time, but for the time being technical director Frank Arnesen is trying to strengthen the second team with a view to the future. The upcoming transfer of Francesco Antonucci, who will in all probability be taken over from AS Monaco, is an example of this. It will not connect until the summer of 2021.
Bernardo Neves Jesus Gouveia Silva, or Bernardo Silva for short, is back in Rotterdam and will renew his contract tomorrow #Feyenoord sign. The 19-year-old Portuguese midfielder is transfer-free from Benfica and is a direct reinforcement for the U21 team of Rini Coolen.
