Cristiano Ronaldo has urged Real Madrid board to sign compatriot Andre Silva from AC Milan
With Karim Benzema out of form and Gareth Bale still struggling with injuries, Real Madrid is looking for fresh attacking options. Currently, they are 8 points behind the league leaders and have a tricky last-16 match against PSG. So, there is a player required that can change the face of the game. In this context, even Ronaldo is helping out with his opinion.
According to Diario Gol, Madrid Superstar has urged Florentino Perez to choose AC Milan player Andre Silva. The Portuguese has scored a total of 7 goals in 18 matches.
Ronaldo Chooses Andre Silva over Mauro Icardi
The 22-year-old transferred to Milan for £33million this summer. To Madrid’s luck, he is already on the lookout for his next team. At this point, lots of teams are looking at Andre Silva as a possible answer to their goalscoring problems. It was reported not long ago that Arsenal and Barcelona are also looking to capture Silva’s signatures. Valencia was also reportedly interested in the Milan forward.
Ronaldo and Silva share a great camaraderie during their time together with the national team. In addition to the player’s undoubted class, this is another reason why Ronaldo is pleading the higher-ups at Madrid to choose Andre Silva.
In the same report of Diario Gol, it is reported that seeing Mauro Icardi, another Milan based-forward on Real Madrid’s radar, at the Bernabeu is not fancied by Cristiano. The 32-year-old only wants to see Andre Silva in the team with questions over Icardi’s temperament.
Andre Silva’s chemistry with Ronaldo is definitely a good one. Although, Ronaldo is known to be a ‘selfish goalscorer’, he and Andre Silva have gelled for Portugal. The game of both the players is strong in tandem.
Also, the 22-year-old is a good player as can be seen by his stats. Currently, AC Milan is a mess. So, leaving the club, should the opportunity arise, will be a good option for the youngster.
