André Silva has kept all doors open regarding his future after scoring again for Portugal yesterday.
Milan signed Gonzalo Higuain in the summer and so André Silva, as confirmed by Gennaro Gattuso many times, chose to leave the club despite the Rossoneri’s desire to keep him in the squad.
The 22-year-old is on loan with option to buy at Sevilla and he has had an incredible start to the season, netting 7 goals in 7 league appearances. Silva, who at Milan only scored 2 goals in 24 Serie A games, was on target again yesterday as Portugal beat Poland 3-2 in a UEFA Nations League game.
“The goal is special for me and for all the Portuguese people, but what matters is winning and bringing home the three points,” he told Mediaset, as reported by Milannews.it. “I’m having a good time in my club? Now I’m with the national team, but I’m a Milan player on loan at Sevilla, a team I’m happy in. Going back to Milan? No one knows the future, myself included. We’ll see.”
Milan are looking for a third striker for January, possibly Zlatan Ibrahimović on loan, so if they change the system to 4-4-2 for instance, there could be more space for Silva next year. However, it’s hard to believe Sevilla will not activate their €30m buy-out option after such great performances.
Spanish football seems better suited to the characteristics of Silva, as like Nikola Kalinić put it in an interview to AS, “there isn’t as much defense in Spain as in Italy, everyone wants to play and win.”
