With 20 goals and five assists in 23 appearances this season, striker André Silva seems to have finally found his success at Eintracht Frankfurt.
The Portuguese international was surrounded by expectations when leaving Porto for Milan in 2017, and after a few years of struggling, he’s now showing what his potential was all about.
His form hasn’t gone unnoticed, and that’s why he’s been linked to a few sides in the past couple of months, including Manchester United.
The Red Devils were said to be interested in taking him as an option for Edinson Cavani, who at the age of 33, doesn’t have many more years on his best form. He was also pointed out as a plan b in case they fail to sign Erling Haaland.
The rumours, however, are turned down today by German journalist Christian Falk. Speaking on his SportBild talk show, he claims Manchester United haven’t made any kind of contact for the signing of André Silva so far.
“That’s a not true, I’ve asked around. The rumours come from England, there’s absolutely nothing to it yet. Maybe they’ll make it, at some point, but so far there’s been no contact, but it does show that when the reporters are looking at replacements, United have already moved from Haaland off a bit. I don’t think they’re that far into the race,” said the journalist.
So even though we might see Manchester United going for Silva at some point, it seems there’s no hurry for the Portuguese star for now.
