Bacca open to PSG move after AC Milan sign Andre Silva

After completing his medical, André Sliva has completed a transfer to AC Milan for €38m.

Silva would become Milan's fourth acquisition since Serie A ended last month, after Mateo Musacchio, Franck Kessie and Ricardo Rodriguez.

This might not be the enormous marquee signing of Diego Costa or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, but in Andre Silva, Milan have snapped up one of Europe's brightest striker prospects. "I and [sporting director] Massimiliano Mirabelli are really satisfied to have convinced Andre and Porto so quickly".

Milan have announced that they have signed Portugal worldwide, Andre Silva from FC Porto.

A breakthrough in Silva's career began last season in all competitions, a new player of "Milan" has played 44 matches in which he scored 21 goals.

Silva says "this opportunity has been a pleasant surprise". Silva hailed the structure of Milan and was delighted with the facilities at the club - stating it was a dream come true to be part of the Rossoneri.

He could inherit the No. 10 jersey left by the departing Keisuke Honda.

Instead, they've arguably adopted a more sensible approach with the signing of Silva for much less in terms of the fee and wages, and it's reported by that they will continue to pursue Fiorentina striker Nikola Kalinic.

Former Porto ace Silva's arrival at the San Siro, setting the big spenders back a further £35m, will likely force Bacca down the pecking order.
