André Silva has been tearing up La Liga since his move from AC Milan to Sevilla, and with all of the injuries and the lack of striking options for the club, his departure might still leave a bad taste in the mouth of Milan fans.

While it seems like a damn shame that it didn’t work out for Silva at Milan, it appears that the deal to send him to Sevilla will at least leave Milan with a profit, albeit a small one.

It’s being reported that the loan deal is costing Sevilla €4 million, with the buy-out clause set at €39 million, which is still more than the club paid for him originally. It’s not great to see someone move on after seeming to not get a chance, only to light it up with his new team, but oh well. At least Milan still has Cutrone.
