André Silva future still uncertain
With the imminent arrival of Gonzalo Higuain from Juventus on a season-long loan, Andre Silva's opportunity for game time is going to become increasingly sparse at AC Milan, and his future looks set to continue elsewhere - but the destination is still unknown.
It has been reported that Galatasaray have made an approach for the young striker, who went to the World Cup with Portugal last month, but failed to find the back of the net in any of his outings.
However, as Calciomercato have now advanced, Monaco, with Portuguese manager Leonardo Jardim leading the side, will be coming in to sign the former Portugal U21 international, with a season-long loan deal the most likely option.
With Jorge Mendes the agent of the ex-Porto striker, who was simply stunning in his final season with the Portuguese club, a move to Monaco is a very realistic prospect, with many of Mendes' Gestifute clients passing through the French club in recent years.
However, there is still nothing official in place, and reports of other club's being interested in the prospect of signing the 22-year old striker, particularly on loan, with Galatasaray, Wolves and Valencia all associated with the Porto academy graduate.
With Wolves' strong connection with Jorge Mendes, they have been a constant source of speculation as the next destination for Silva, which would see him link up with his former manager Nuno Espirito Santo, but nothing has yet come to the fore.
What is for sure is that Andre Silva will not accept another season stuck on the bench on the outside looking in, and will be hoping to rejuvenate his career, having already scored 12 goals for Portugal's senior team in just 26 caps.
