Sevilla Reach Agreement to Sign Andre Silva on Loan
Sevilla and AC Milan have reached an agreement that will see Andre Silva move to La Liga on a one-year loan deal.
Silva, 22, scored 20 goals in 41 appearances in all competitions for Porto in 2016-17, and he made three appearances, with one start, for Portugal at the World Cup this summer.
The Portugal forward moved to San Siro last summer, but failed to establish himself as Milan endured yet another mediocre Serie A season in 2017-18.
Now, with Gonzalo Higuain arriving at the club to heighten the competition among the Rossoneri’s forwards, Silva has opted for a move away from Milan.
Reports say that the Andalucian team have agreed a loan transfer worth an estimated €5 million, with a purchase option also included in the deal.
Sevilla will have the opportunity to sign Silva on a permanent basis in return for a fee of €30m (£26.8m/$34.2m) prior to June 30 next year.
While his future remained up in the air, Silva was excluded from Milan’s squad to face Real Madrid in Saturday’s Copa Bernabeu.
