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.
