The sale of Andre Silva for 30 million to Monaco allows AC Milan t fund a move for Atletico Madrid striker Angel Correa. Negotiations between the clubs are in an advanced phase and white smoke is expected in the coming days. The Argentine striker is more suitable to coach Marco Giampaolo’s football ides and would be a perfect partner in attack for Krzysztof Piatek.
Apparently Andre Silva did no want to stay at San Siro and fight for a starting role. The same situation applies for the club who were eager to cash-in in case of a pleasing offer. The Portugal international has a great desire to re-launch his career after two frustrating seasons.
AC Milan purchased Andre Silva in 2017 for 38 million euros from Porto. The 23-year-old centre forward failed to establish himself as a regular at San Siro scoring just 2 Serie A goals and an additional in Europa League. Similar results followed at Sevilla where, after a bright start, he scored just 11 goals with the Spanish club refusing to make his move permanent.
