AC Milan have announced that Andre Silva is their fourth signing of the summer. Milan wasted no time in moving for the Porto and Portugal star after enduring setbacks in their moves for a striker thus far. Andre Silva comes to Milan highly rated and has been dubbed the future for Portugal by none other than Cristiano Ronaldo. CR7 rates Andre Silva - as do many, but Milan have had a pretty cheap offer of €38 million accepted and Andre Silva will become the future of AC Milan.

Silva joins Milan on a deal that will last five years and might just be the highlight of their summer deals. It certainly comes as a surprise - considering that Silva was being evaluated by clubs like Real Madrid. This is a huge investment in Milan’s future even if Andrea Belotti or Diego Costa arrive - Andre’s value could double within a year if he performs well.

Welcome Andre! Let’s hope for some goals this year!
