A few months ago, when he was asked what the Potuguese national team will look like once he is gone, Cristiano Ronaldo gave an answer with which he practically named his… heir.
When I retire, Portugal will be in good hands, because they have already found a great striker: Andre Silva
the Real Madrid superstar had told the Gazzetta dello Sport.
Fast forward to these days, his… chosen one has a new employer, after AC Milan agreed terms both with Porto and the player himself.
Andre Silva joined us at Milanello, he passed his medical and we can now officially consider him a Milan player
Marco Fassone, Milan’s general manager, told the club’s media channels.
I and sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli are really satisfied to have convinced Andre and Porto so quickly. Andre’s eyes displayed how much pleasure he has to wear our shirt
the Milan executive also said.
According to reports, Porto will get 38 million euros, while two more could end up in their coffers if the 21-year-old striker meets certain targets.
Andre Silva scored 21 goals for Porto in all competitions in the season that just ended, and despite having played only eight times for Portugal’s national team, he has already seven goals to his name.
