Oleg Petrov has stated that André Silva did not fail his medical, but instead there was no agreement with Milan.

André Silva was supposed to be a player of Monaco but the move broke down even after the Portuguese underwent his medical with the French club.

Agent Jorge Mendes is working on finding Silva a new home, as he’s not in the plans of Milan, who would like to sell him and buy Angel Correa from Atletico Madrid. But in the meantime, the player has been called-up for Saturday’s match against Manchester United and has even been assigned a number – #27.

There were rumours that Silva’s move fell through due to a failed medical, and then it was said that it was due to money. Some believe the Monaco option is still on the table for Silva, but general director Oleg Petrov claims otherwise: “The transfer did not happen because of financial disagreements between the two clubs, not due to an injury,” he told AFP news agency.

“There is no negotiation now, we are exploring other routes.”

so Monaco came in with low ball offer way below their original agreement with milan, that is the reason why we pull the plug. To be honest, no point selling Silva for less than 25m, he is talented player and technical player who can operate as focal point or second striker. Might as well keep him to see how he does this season because there is no viable club willing to pay his market value.
