In the current European Football Championship, André Silva could not help his team too much. Portugal failed on Sunday in the round of 16 against Belgium (0: 1), the star striker from Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt was again only a substitute.
At Eintracht, the role of the joker is practically unthinkable for the striker, that’s how important Silva is for his team there. The 25-year-old scored 27 goals this season for Hessen in the past Bundesliga season, and he has a total of 40 goals in 57 championship games.
It goes without saying that Europe’s elite clubs have long been queuing for the center forward, who has an ongoing contract with the SGE until 2023. In addition to the Bundesliga competitor, Atlético Madrid, Manchester City and Arsenal FC have been seen as potential buyers in the last few days and weeks.
Mega commission for Silva’s consultancy agency
In the event of a sale, Eintracht Frankfurt can look forward to a whopping million dollar revenue. At least 40 million euros are named as the transfer fee.
The Causa Silva has a huge catch for the fifth in the table of the past season. As the newspaper “Main-Spitze” reported, a full 25 percent will flow from star agent Jorge Mendes to a possible sale of the Portuguese to his consultancy agency GestiFute. This is said to have been contractually guaranteed to the agency when the star striker was transferred from AC Milan to the Main metropolis two years ago.
Commissions worth millions have long been common in the football business. Such a high proportion is very unusual even for professional football conditions.
It is all the more logical and understandable that Silva’s consultancy agency will continue to force a transfer of the top scorer in the coming weeks. 25 percent commission means no less than ten million euros, should Eintracht actually receive a 40 million offer for their clippers.
