The future of André Silva is far from Milan as talks are ongoing between Milan and Sevilla for the striker.
Nikola Kalinić was sold to Atletico Madrid yesterday and André Silva could soon follow him to La Liga as Sevilla are interested in signing the 22-year-old.
MARCA reported last night that Sevilla and Milan had agreed a €20m for Silva, while AS claimed that a loan deal had been agreed. However, according to Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky, while the interest is very real and a €20m offer has been made by the Rojiblancos, there is still no economical agreement between the sides.
Last year Milan made an important investment in Silva, making him one of the most expensive players in the history of the club due to his €38m price-tag. But the forward struggled to adapt in Italy and was usually second or third choice behind Patrick Cutrone and Kalinić.
At the moment the parties are far, but Silva, Di Marzio says, is pushing for a move to Sevilla and therefore a deal could be made this summer. According to RadioRossonera’s Pietro Balzano Prota, the likely formula at the moment appears to be that of a loan + option rather than permanent sale. The transfer market ends on August 17 at 20:00 CEST, but Milan would still be able to sell to clubs where the mercato is still open even after this date. The La Liga window is open until August 31.
Should André leave, Rino Gattuso would only have Gonzalo Higuain and Cutrone for the striker position (which Fabio Borini can also cover), as Carlos Bacca is unlikely to stay at the club too.
