OFFICIAL: Milan Complete Andre Silva Signing
The Rossoneri have got their fourth reinforcement this transfer window in Andre Silva.
Andre Silva has officially joined Milan from Porto for €38 million on a 5-year deal with a salary of €2 million per season plus bonuses, the club has confirmed. Silva underwent his medical on Monday before putting the finishing touches on his move. He follows Franck Kessie, Musacchio and Rodriguez in boosting up the Serie A giants who seem to have finally risen from the dead.
“Andre Silva joined us last night at Milanello, today he passed his medical and we can now officially consider him a Milan player”, Fassone told the club’s media channels. “Mirabelli and I are really satisfied to have convinced Andre and Porto. His eyes display how much pleasure he has to wear our jersey”.
The 21-year-old Portugal international was third scorer of the Primeira Liga last season with 16 goals in 32 appearances, while he has struck up a sensational partnership with Cristiano Ronaldo in the national team. In five World Cup qualifying matches together, Ronaldo and Silva have scored 17 goals, the junior partner notching six of them.
“I’m very happy to have joined such a prestigious club with such a great history. I can guarantee I will give everything I can to help this club fulfill their ambitions”, said Silva before leaving Italy to link back up with the Portugal national team as they prepare for the Confederations Cup.
Silva will wear the No. 9 jersey, as Gianluca Lapadula has been put on the market.
