Ac Milan officially completes Adre Silva transfer from porto

AC Milan’s summer spending spree continued Monday as they wrapped up a deal for Porto forward Andre Silva. 

News that the deal had gone through was confirmed by the club.

The acquisition is yet another indication that Milan mean business in this window, having already brought in Mateo Musacchio, Ricardo Rodriguez and Franck Kessie.

While the trio aforementioned will bolster the Rossoneri, Silva has the potential to add some stardust to the team in the final third.

Porto have had some tremendous strikers on their books down the years, and Silva is another who lit up the Dragao.

Porto have had some tremendous strikers on their books down the years, and Silva is another who lit up the Dragao.

For Milan, he represents an exciting acquisition. Silva is not only the type of player who will get fans off their seats, he still has room to improve as well. Provided he can continue to develop at the San Siro, he’ll score a hatful in the iconic black and red.

Manager Vincenzo Montella will be delighted to have a striker in place for potentially years to come. A consistent goalscorer is something Milan have lacked for a while and will be so important if they’re to rescale the summit of Serie A.

Silva has the potential to be that man. Indeed, his compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo is confident the forward will be a huge hit in the long term.

A move to Milan will naturally pose different challenges for the striker. There will be a pressure for Silva to hit the ground running given the sizeable fee paid for him, and that may prove difficult against the division’s canny defenders.

Still, it’s difficult to see too many downsides to this deal for Milan. In Silva, they have one of Europe’s rising stars and a player with the potential to fire them back into contention for UEFA Champions League places in 2017-18 and beyond.
