It is now official that the Portuguese has left Milan and will play in La Liga at least for the next season.
André Silva joined Milan from Porto last summer for €38m but failed to properly adapt to the world of Italian football and often found himself on the bench.
After just 2, albeit crucial, Serie A goals, Silva is already saying goodbye to Milan. Today he landed in Spain and this evening the transfer was completed.
“Sevilla and Milan have reached an agreement for the loan, with option to buy, of André Silva, subject to the passing of a medical,” the La Liga outfit wrote on their official website this evening. “At 22 years old André Silva is one of the most promising forwards in European football, first making his breakthrough with Porto in the 16/17 season when he scored 16 goals in 32 league games.
“He would score 24 goals in 58 games for the Club, making him a key member of the Portugal squad – 12 goals in 26 matches – and leading him to a transfer to Milan. For the Italian side, despite not being afforded the continuity he desired, Silva still managed 10 goals in 40 appearances.”
It is believed that Sevilla will pay €5m for the loan of Silva while the option is for €30m. Andre will hope to impress and make a name for himself, after losing his momentum during his year at Milan.
