Manchester United could be ‘offered Eintracht Frankurt’s star striker Andre Silva for £30m’ this summer if they choose not to extend Edinson Cavani’s contract at Old Trafford

  • Man United could sign Eintracht Frankfurt striker Andre Silva in the summer
  • The Portuguese forward has scored 19 goals in 22 appearances for Frankfurt
  • Silva has two years remaining on his contract with the club, but could be sold
  • Frankfurt want to raise funds to re-sign Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic permanently   

Manchester United could reportedly sign Eintracht Frankfurt striker Andre Silva in the summer if Edinson Cavani’s contract is not extended.

The Portuguese international has been in outstanding form this season, scoring 19 goals in 22 appearances for the German side – trailing only to Robert Lewandowski in the race for the Bundesliga golden boot. 

Silva, 25, has two years remaining on his contract with the Bundesliga side, but Frankfurt could be open to a deal as they are looking to raise funds to buy back Real Madrid forward Luka Jovic.

Silva had previously been linked with a move to the Premier League in 2017, but chose to join AC Milan for £32million instead. 

After joining the Italian side he was shipped out on loan to both Sevilla and Frankfurt before committing his future to the latter. 

Joining the Premier league has, however, continued to be of interest to Silva and it is believed his agent, Jorge Mendes, is in the process of orchestrating a deal between his current club and Manchester United, according to The Sun. 

Frankfurt would only be interested in completing a deal with the Premier League giants if it will free up the funds to bring Jovic back to the club permanently.

Jovic left for Madrid in 2019 for £51m after scoring 36 goals over two seasons, but fell out of favour under Zinedine Zidane. As a result, he returned to Frankfurt on loan last month and would be willing to re-join them permanently if the Bundesliga club can stump up the money to meet Madrid’s price tag. 

Frankfurt are said to be demanding £30m for their in form striker, but United’s decision will be based off what they decide to do with Cavani over the next few months. 

United signed the 34-year-old striker on a one-year deal in October but have the option to extend his deal by a year.

The Uruguayan forward has impressed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer by scoring six goals in 17 appearances.
