Andre Silva Signs Permanently For Eintracht Frankfurt

Recommended Posts

Official: Andre Silva sold to Eintracht

Milan have officially sold Andre Silva to Eintracht Frankfurt and are expected to secure Ante Rebic in exchange.

An announcement was made somewhat out of the blue this evening.

Andre Silva and Rebic exchanged places on two-year loans last summer, without options to buy.

They have been negotiating permanent moves ever since, but in entirely separate deals.

“AC Milan announces the transfer of the player Andre Miguel Valente da Silva to Eintracht Frankfurt on a permanent deal,” read a statement.

“The Club wishes him all the best in his future endeavours and thanks him for his professionalism.”

The 24-year-old Portugal international striker was signed from FC Porto in 2017 for €38m, but never quite lived up to that price-tag.

He had a loan spell at Sevilla in 2018-19 before the move to Eintracht Frankfurt and has now signed a contract with the Bundesliga side to June 2023.

Andre Silva scored just 10 goals in 41 games for Milan, but 16 in 37 appearances for Eintracht last season.

On paper it seems like Eintracht Frankfurt have done excellent business in signing Andre Silva from AC Milan for only €9 million. It's clear that they will also soon be selling Rebic to AC Milan on a permanent basis as well. But as 50% of any potential sale of Rebic will go to his previous club Fiorentina, Frankfurt obviously must have pressured Milan into lowering their transfer fee demands for Silva. 

It will be interesting to see how much the Rebic to AC Milan transfer fee will be. I am not sure why Frankfurt and Milan didn't just do a straight swap, but maybe Rebic's contract deal when he joined Frankfurt from Fiorentina wouldn't allow this.
