AC Milan are looking for a playmaker/right-winger on the market and with just over one week left, time is running out. A low-cost option seems likely, which is why the Bernardo Silva rumours came as a shock for many.
The English outlet Daily Star reported last night that Milan want the Portuguese international on a two-year paid loan, worth around €17.5m, with an obligation to buy set at €35m. A significant investment that doesn’t sound like the Rossoneri at all.
As clarified by the reliable Anto Vitiello this morning, when asked about the rumour, he stated that it’s a very difficult operation for Milan as the costs are very high. And one can imagine that it’s not just the transfer fee, but also Silva’s salary.
Costi elevatissimi, molto difficile

The search for a right-winger, therefore, continues and one can only hope that the Rossoneri will have a new player for that role before the window closes.
