Man Utd and Wolves target Andre Silva claims transfer rumours provide ‘motivation’ and jokes he’s worth £90m
MANCHESTER UNITED target Andre Silva jokes he is worth £90million and claimed transfer speculation keeps him motivated.
The 25-year-old striker moved to Eintracht Frankfurt from Milan last summer following a loan spell.
That initial stint produced 12 goals and four assists in 25 Bundesliga matches.
Portuguese hotshot Silva has improved those statistics to 19 goals and three assists in just 21 games this term.
Silva is behind only Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski for the most goals scored across Europe’s top five leagues.
And his form has caught the attention of the continent’s big boys.
Both United and Wolves have been linked with a summer swoop for the forward.
And during an interview with O Jogo, Silva admitted he is aware of the speculation and they are even providing him with extra motivation.
He said: “I’ve heard rumours, but that is it. Rumours are rumours.
“At the end of this season, it’s something that gives me more motivation to work – it’s a sign that what I have accomplished has borne fruit, and the path has been good.”

Some reports have suggested that Frankfurt could decide to cash in on him for around £26m this summer.
But he tongue-in-cheek claimed he is worth a lot more, saying: “Around €105 million? I’m kidding.
“I think I heard €30m and something somewhere. When we sell our merchandise, we always increase the value a little bit.”
