MANCHESTER CITY have reportedly been offered three world-class players as Paris Saint-Germain attempt to secure a swap transfer for Bernardo Silva.
The Treble winners face a battle to keep hold of the Portuguese playmaker, 28, this summer.

Among the interested parties are said to be the French champions, PSG.
The report adds the Ligue 1 club have already made several offers to City for the five-time Premier League winner who joined the club in 2017 and has made more than 300 appearances.
However, with no deal struck, they are also allegedly exploring the chance to secure a player swap.
And a trio of huge names have all been suggested as possible makeweights.
Italian duo goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma and midfielder Marco Verratti could be offered to City.
And defender Presnel Kimpembe is another option.
However, with Ederson the clear No1 at the Etihad, Donnarumma would likely be surplus to requirements.
Kimpembe – a former Chelsea target – does have a World Cup winner’s medal but would not be a significant improvement on Ruben Dias, John Stones, Nathan Ake, Aymeric Laporte or Manuel Akanji.
PSG have already brought in midfielders Marco Asensio, Manuel Ugarte, Lee Kang-in and teenager Cher Ndour.
Hugo Ekitike, Milan Skriniar and Lucas Hernandez also joined the reigning French champions.
However, Lionel Messi and Sergio Ramos both left when their contracts expired.
