"I am a Milan player". André Silva, the antechamber of a return after a year with two faces

In the midst of the whirlwind of rumors sweeping over Milan, between future teeters, technicians and managers, one of the few certainties is the return to the base of André Silva, hit by a real storm in Seville. The coach Caparros has publicly hurled himself against the Portuguese, making heavy accusations against the class '95: "Injured? We are not stupid. André Silva will not play and it is a case of which we must speak for the sake of football" . The response of the footballer, who responded to defend himself against the serious accusations of the technician, was not delayed:"Obviously I do not pretend to be injured, I have a clear conscience. Certain insinuations make me sad. I do not tolerate being pointed at and saying that I do not want to work. My future? I am a player of Milan" .
BACK TO THE BASE - A Milan player. This is how André Silva defined himself, anticipating what appears to be a foregone conclusion: the failure to redeem by Seville. After the first few months, decidedly high level, it seemed highly probable that the Andalusian club paid the 39 million to the Rossoneri, so much so that someone, in Italy, was starting to eat his hands since the young striker showed in Liga. Then what happened? The goals decreased, until they stopped, and even the attendance as a holder was reduced gradually, until the recent controversy that basically put an end to the Silva-Seville relationship. Yet the boy had made nine goals from August to December (11 final ones), not a few for a young striker in an important league.
WHAT FUTURE? -The 39 million ransom would certainly have been useful to Milan, but not all "evils" come to harm. André Silva, although still in need of testing, has shown he can score and could be useful even if he stays in the Rossoneri. It is probable that a further transfer is again sought, but in a summer of semi-technical revolution like the one we are about to make, it cannot be ruled out that the native of Baguim do Monte can find space. The Portuguese would certainly be more adaptable than Piatek and Cutrone in the case of a two-pronged deployment, almost never used this season due to the absence of alternatives on the bench. Furthermore, with the likely participation in a European cup, two strikers could be few.
