André Silva has decided on his new jersey number: 69.

Gonzalo Higuain was announced as the new striker of Milan on Thursday and it was also confirmed that he will be wearing the #9 jersey for the Rossoneri.

The jersey was already owned by Silva, but Leonardo called André to ask him to give up on the number; the Portuguese showed openness and understanding, and agreed to give it to Pipita.

And this evening it was revealed by Milannews.it (and confirmed by MilanTV director Mauro Suma on Twitter) that the 22-year-old has decided that his new jersey number will be #69. He will be wearing a jersey with this number tonight should he take the field against Barcelona (02:05 CEST kickoff).

The #7 jersey may be available soon as Kalinić is expected to leave, but Silva, whose own future remains uncertain has decided to go with #69. Please try to keep the gross jokes to a minimum.

I often wondered how those particular conversations start?
Hey Andre how’s things, hope all’s well with you?
Ehhh we’ve just signed a much better striker who’ll also be playing week in week out which will more than likely limit your playing time even further, I hope you understand? And by the way he also wants the shirt off your back too, i hope that’s ok?
Could be worse I suppose, imagine we signed John Terry?
Ps Andre, he also wants your wife

Hard not to go with the gross jokes.

Let’s say that number is very becoming on him.

What? He chose it!

I also think that eventually Maldini, now a Director, will convince Silva to wear #7 and in a few years, Cutrone will succeed Higuain’s #9. Then Silva and Cutrone can be Sheva and Inzaghi. Silva is just showing his disappointment when asked to give up his #9 by going 69! Give him some time and he’ll be good.

Maybe he’s just a big fan of the “summer of 69”-song?
Hope he’ll score plenty wearing his jersey with 69 on it – on and off the pitch:)

Googling and just find that Bixente Lizarazu (Bayern Munich 1997-2006) using that number.
Thats hes birth year (1969) and his height (1,69 cm)
For andre? I dont know. Maybe we used to ask his wife….

Andre Silva just getting angry, don’t care anymore what number he’s using. Can’t you guys all see ?? 69 is like he just make fun with Leonardo and higuain and maybe gattuso. I think no 9 was important for him and the management take away just like that
