CM: Milan willing to sell striker for €15m having paid €38m for him three years ago

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are reportedly willing to take a substantial loss on the amount they paid for striker Andre Silva when they sell him, a report claims.

The Portugal international joined Milan during the summer transfer campaign of 2017, arriving in a big money €38m move from Porto, but never really hit the ground running during his time at San Siro.

After being loaned out to Sevilla last season, he then joined Eintracht Frankfurt on a two-year loan on deadline day during the last summer window, with Ante Rebic coming the other way as part of it.

The 24-year-old has seven goals in 22 appearances in all competitions, and Bild have reported numerous times that Eintracht and the player are both thinking about making his deal permanent.

The player himself admitted during an interview with the same outlet earlier on Tuesday that he has ‘many reasons’ to try and remain in Germany, seemingly closing the door to any kind of a return to Milan.

According to Calciomercato.com, Milan have already made their stance on the player clear: they are happy to sell him this summer to Eintracht but wish to try and get at least €15m from his sale, so as not to record a loss on the balance sheets when factoring in amoritsation.
