Eintracht Frankfurt want to make Andre Silva’s stay at the club a permanent one and talks are underway with Milan, a report has claimed.
The Portugal international has found a new lease of life having netted three times in the last four games for the Bundesliga side since the resumption of the season in Germany. That of course comes off the back of a difficult two years at Milan – who signed him for €38million – and then at Sevilla last season.
According to Calciomercato.com, the two-year loan deal which saw Silva move to Frankfurt is a dry one with no option of obligation to buy. However they have already started talks with Milan over a permanent deal as they are satisfied with the performance of the centre-forward.
The Rossoneri would need to collect at least €7.6million in order not to record capital losses as that is his residual value on the balance sheet. Any higher figure would generate a capital gain.
If they were to try and buy him this summer, then it would be an option that could also include winger Ante Rebic as part of a deal as he moved to Milan on the same terms.
Silva could be included in the operation, and in order not to record losses in the summer of 2020, Milan would have to collect at least €15.2million.
