The speed with which Milan are conducting their business stands in stark contrast to the mismanagement of previous transfer windows and it's clear that the Vincenzo Montella is building a core for the future, with the arrivals of Kessie (21), Silva (21), supported by the experience of Musacchio (26).

"Andre's eyes displayed how much pleasure he has to wear our shirt".

The Portuguese youngster was third scorer of the Primeira Liga in the last season with 16 goals in 32 outings and was linked even with Real Madrid, but Milan were the fastest are closing the €38 million deal.

With Silva joining in a €38 million deal from Porto on Monday, competition for places in Milan's attack is set to be even tighter, and it could spell the end for Colombia worldwide Bacca. Overall, this seems a great signing for Milan and one with an eye on the future as I Rossoneri seek their first Scudetto since 2010/11. He also scored four times in eight appearances in last season's Champions League.

"I am calm", Silva said to Milan News.

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

They have not featured in Europe's elite club competition since the 2013-14 season and will be involved in next season's Europa League third qualifying round, having finished sixth in the Italian top flight this season.

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 MilanNews.it that they will continue to pursue Fiorentina striker Nikola Kalinic.

"I've seen the training ground which really astonished me, and I hope that everything goes for the best".
