Andre Silva, who will wear Milan shirt next season, thanked Ronaldo for the good words.
Portugal’s talented striker, Andre Silva, has successfully passed medical tests at Milan, the club announced on the official website.
Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo praised the 21-year-old Portuguese, whom he sees as his successor in Portugal.
“When I retire, Portugal will be in safe hands because they have already found an excellent striker: Andre Silva,” Ronaldo told Gazzetta dello Sport, ensuring the Milan have transferred a super player.
Silva is delighted by Ronaldo’s words, as he says it’s time to work hard to not disappoint him.
“The successor of CR7? I am calm. I have to work, others express their opinions, “he said.
“Did I talk to Ronaldo about coming here? No. I just want to work hard and get close to the good words he has told about me, “Silva added.
This is the fourth reinforcement for Milan this summer after Mateo Musacchio, Franck Kessie and Ricardo Rodriguez.
