Andre Silva drops Milan hint

Andre Silva has hinted that he will be returning to Milan this summer after being forced to deny claims he has been faking injury.

Our sister site explains how the Portugal international has not started a match for loan club Sevilla since March and complained of a knee injury in recent weeks.

The striker clarified in an interview with A Bola: “I’m not simulating an injury, I’ve been receiving treatment.

“My conscience is clear; I’ve wanted to play and the problem for me is that as time has passed, the pain has worsened.

“Maybe this hasn’t been handled in the best way and I should’ve taken a break in December to sort it, but Sevilla needed me and I wanted to play.”

Sevilla seem increasingly unlikely to take up their €35m option to buy Silva, who has scored just two goals in his last 20 League games, and he was asked where his future lay.

“I’m a Milan player,” he concluded.
