Sevilla pay €20m for Silva?

Sevilla are being tipped to buy Milan striker Andre Silva for €20m as his No 69 shirt has been removed from the Rossoneri’s online store. 

AS had reported that Sevilla were closing in on a loan deal for Silva, but Marca believes the Portuguese will make a permanent move to Sanchez Pizjuan.

The newspaper explains the Diavolo paid €22m for the 22-year-old last summer – as opposed to the initial €38m quoted.

Therefore, the club would be willing to sell for €20m as it would constitute a minimal loss on their part, while raising funds that can be used on other areas of the squad.

PianetaMilan also spotted Silva’s No 69 is no longer available for purchase on Milan’s online store, suggesting he is close to leaving.
