Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva wants to leave the club for Laliga.
The Portuguese have been linked with both Barcelona and Atletico Madrid after losing his starting XI certainty in recent months.
City boss Pep Guardiola is keen on retaining the former AS Monaco star but the club is said to be keen on getting Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish.
The Daily Mail reports that the 26-year-old has now opted to take the growing opportunity to move on from the Etihad Stadium, with Spain his preferred destination this summer.
While both Barca and Atleti are in need of the player, their financial challenges mean that it will be difficult to sign the player.
With four years left on his current City deal, Guardiola is likely to demand in the region of £60m to kickstart any potential exit talks.
