Bernardo Silva joked that his Portuguese teammate Jota Silva bears an uncanny resemblance to Man City star Jack Grealish and even went as far as taking a selfie with his compatriot to show England moving forward.

The Portuguese duo are in camp ahead of their side’s friendlies against Sweden and Slovenia in the next two weeks. On Tuesday, they sat down to talk to reporters about the upcoming games.

The 24-year-old Jota, who plays for Vitoria de Guimaraes, was called up to Roberto Martinez’s senior squad for the first time this week, along with fellow rookie Francisco Conceicao.

Somehow the conversation started talking about the similarities between Jota and Grealish. Bernardo then appeared to chuckle, before saying: “I’m going to send Jack (Grealish) a selfie.”

A person from outside the live stream of the press conference was then seen handing the Man City midfielder a mobile phone as the pair came together to smile before taking the photo.

While we have yet to hear if Grealish received the image, Bernardo also joked that he wanted to play a prank on Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.

“And maybe I’ll take Jota to Manchester to fool Guardiola!” he said, laughing.

‘There are similarities. When the conference is over, I’ll send Jack a photo.’

The funny exchange comes after Bernardo Silva announced on Tuesday that he wanted to end his career away from Manchester City.

He has been a key player since arriving at Etihad in 2017, having also signed a new one-year contract in 2026.

Pondering whether he could make a romantic return to Benfica, Silva said: ‘How far am I from returning? I think people are a little tired of that question. It’s been a long time,” he said SIC, through SAPO Desporto.

‘I’m sure I’ll be back, I don’t know when, it’s hard to time it and say if it’s in two years, in three years, if it’s next year with (current Benfica boss) Roger Schmidt (laughs ).

“But I’ve said it several times and I think people are getting tired of hearing it: it is without a doubt a career and life goal to return to Benfica.”

Grealish has been hampered in recent weeks by a groin injury, which initially appeared to have been sustained during City’s 3-1 Champions League win against FC Copenhagen.

He was due to return for last month’s Manchester derby but appeared to aggravate the injury again, being sidelined for the next three games before returning as an unused substitute in their FA Cup quarter-final victory against Newcastle last weekend.
