Man United leading race to sign €40m-rated Portuguese striker

It’s easy to write off a footballer if a giant move doesn’t work out, but it’s starting to look like Andre Silva’s move to AC Milan just came far too early for him. Portugal international’s now done that after a couple of great campaigns with Frankfurt in the Bundesliga, while his record of 18 goals in 20 league matches this campaign is incredible.

Andre only had one proper season in the first team with Porto before he made the move and he played in an extraordinary amount of matches, so it’s possible that he suffered second-season syndrome in that season in Italy and he needed some time to bounce back.

It’s understandable that there will be interest in him after such sparkling form, and Red Devils are now considering an offer. It’s believed that they really want Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund but he could be out of their price range in the summer, so Silva’s reported price tag of €30m is much more appealing.

It’s also reported that Atletico Madrid are interested so there would be some competition for his signature, but his record certainly suggests that he could be a great signing if he could replicate that in England.
