AC Milan are planning to offer Andre Silva on loan to Roma in exchange for Czech striker Patrick Schick.
TRANSFER NEWS MILAN – AC Milan’s transfer campaign is officially on hold. A few more days are needed for Paolo Maldini to be officially announced as the new technical director of the club. The appointment of Marco Giampaolo as the new AC Milan coach is also a matter of days or perhaps hours.
Marco Giampaolo’s arrival will not only revolutionize AC Milan’s style of play but it will also have an impact on the transfer market. Some unexpected signings may take place this summer to satisfy the former Sampdoria coach.
According to Sportmediaset and La Repubblica, AC Milan are planning a swap deal with Roma. The Italian news outlets explain that the Rossoneri will offer Andre Silva on loan in exchange for Patrick Schick this summer. Both players are unwanted at their respective clubs and want to change squad soon.
The Portuguese striker has returned to AC Milan after an unsuccessful loan spell at Sevilla. The season started brightly for Andre Silva with a number of goals that helped Sevilla hold the third sport for several weeks but his form faded quickly. The 23-year-old striker closed the season with 9 La Liga goals in 27 appearances. He also got himself into trouble with Sevilla coach Joaquin Caparros pretending that Andre Silva was faking an injury and inviting UEFA to investigate the case.
After an explosive first season in Italy with Sampdoria, Patrick Schick earned a transfer to Roma. The capitol club paid a record-breaking 42 million euros fee to Sampdoria for Schick but the 23-year-old striker has failed to live up to expectations. Schick had his breakthrough under Giampolo and the Italian coach would like to work with the Czech international again.
