André Silva will most likely return to Milan as it appears Sevilla have decided they don’t want to keep him.
Silva arrived to Milan in the summer of 2017 as part of the mercato of Marco Fassone and Massimiliano Mirabelli, but after a very disappointing debut season in Italy, the striker was sent to Sevilla on loan with option to be bought.
The Portuguese’s adventure at Sevilla started brilliantly with a hat-trick on his La Liga debut but after a great beginning (7 goals in the first 7 Matchdays), Silva’s season took a turn for the worse.
The 23-year-old hasn’t found the net since January 26 and has been dealing with physical problems (tendonitis in the knee) and so Silva has fallen from grace. Therefore, the Seville-based Estadio Deportivo reports that Rojiblancos director Monchi has decided to send Silva back to Milan.
It’s said that Monchi, who returned to Sevilla at the start of the month, has no interest in keeping Silva. The La Liga side have an option to buy the ex-Porto striker for €38m-€39m, but it’s stated that Monchi won’t even try to negotiate a discount and get Silva permanently for a better price.
It’s hard to imagine that Silva will stay at Milan next season as the Rossoneri already have Krzysztof Piątek and Patrick Cutrone. André could perhaps be used as a bargaining chip to get a new player.
