Revealed: How Milan will make a capital gain from Andre Silva sale

By Oliver Fisher -

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.

It has been revealed that important discussions were taking place on Thursday, which was to be the day of the presentation of Theo Hernandez and Rade Krunic (later postponed to Friday).

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).
