Man City star Bernardo Silva

The retirements of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo will pave way for Manchester City star Bernardo Silva to be crowned a Ballon d’Or winner, according to former Portugal winger Paulo Futre.

Silva was instrumental for Pep Guardiola’s side during their historic domestic treble-winning campaign.

His performance against Liverpool in January served up the finest example of his talent and work ethic since signing from Monaco in 2017 for €50 million.

The 24-year-old was voted City’s Player of the Season by supporters as a result of displays such as that one.

And former Porto, Atletico Madrid and AC Milan forward, Futre reckons he is the next superstar in the making.
