AC Milan will make a nice capital gain should Andre Silva’s €30million move to Monaco be completed, reports claim.
We recently reported that the Portugal international is closing in on a move to the Ligue 1 giants thanks to agent Jorge Mendes, and that Angel Correa would arrive from Atletico Madrid to replace him.
Silva has left his team-mates in the USA and is now in Monte Carlo to complete his move, and as Calciomercato.com notes it will be a net gain for Milan due to amortisation.
The €38m fee (paid to Porto two years ago) amortised over his five-year deal works out at €7.6m-a-year. Since he has only been at Milan for two years, his ‘book value’ will be €22.8m, which minus the €4m loan fee paid by Sevilla is €18.8m. The difference between that amount and the fee Monaco will pay is the profit (€11.2m).
