André Silva’s goal for Milan this weekend may have spoken a lot about his future. At least for the Portuguese press.
As newspaper Diário de Notícias covers the striker’s performance against Genoa, they say his improvement should make a big difference on the moves he will make in the summer window.
This was André Silva’s first league goal since joining Milan on a €38m deal from Porto last summer. So six months without scoring was plenty of time for the transfer rumours to be on.
Diário de Notícias recalls that André Silva has been linked to Sevilla, Valencia, Monaco and Wolves lately, but the outlet doesn’t really want to feed these rumours.
They claim that this goal should help his Milan career, and that would be a very positive point for Portugal in the World Cup. They even take quotes from manager Gennaro Gattuso to show the player may stay after the summer.
Although there’s nothing factual in their story, the Portuguese point of view makes it clear that staying at Milan should be Silva’s priority right now, regardless of the interested clubs.
In case Silva thinks the same way, then that would be a blow for Wolves in the race to sign him. That is, in case Milan still plan to keep him. For that to happen, more goals need to come.
At the weekend O Jogo reported Jorge Mendes had ‘reminded’ Milan of Wolves’ interest in the player.
