Consadole Sapporo draw 0-0 against Gamba Osaka in J-League

Having recently signed for AC Milan, André Silva is hoping that his goals can help fire the Rossoneri to the Scudetto.

The Portuguese striker recently signed from FC Porto for a reported fee of €38 million, making him their fourth big capture of the transfer window after the signings of Mateo Musacchio, Ricardo Rodriguez, and Franck Kessie.

"I chose Milan because they're a club with great history in the Champions League, I'm happy that Milan wanted me and I couldn't pass up this opportunity," Silva told Milan TV.

"I hope to help Milan in the coming seasons. With the level of the team, I hope to win the League, to win as many games as possible."

Before the new Serie A season begins, Silva will join up with the Portugal national team for the 2017 Fifa Confederations Cup.

"On a personal level, I want to do my best to help Milan reach our objectives," Silva added. "Now I'll play the Confederations Cup, and I hope it all goes well, then I'll come here to give my all."

Portugal are in Group A in the Confederations Cup, where they will face Russia and New Zealand after taking on Mexico in their first match of the competition on Sunday the 18th.
