Manchester City have been linked with a move for Andre Silva during the summer transfer window as they prepare to wave goodbye to Sergio Aguero.
The Daily Mail has previously linked the Frankfurt striker with a move to the Etihad Stadium as a possible replacement for the Argentine.
Now, some good news seems to have emerged. Sport 1 are claiming that the player has a release clause in his contract of £27 million and that should delight potential suitors.
Silva has found the net 24 times this season with nine assists also to his name for the Bundesliga outfit.
City hope to make a stellar signing during the summer, with Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe likely to be under consideration.
Deals for those two could prove tricky though and Pep Guardiola will have contingency arrangements.
Following news of the 25-year-old’s release clause, City fans have taken to Twitter to discuss the possibility of him arriving in Manchester.
Here is what City fans are saying about the player who earns £27,500-a-week at Frankfurt.
outscoring Haaland this season but so has Werner last season…still though he looks like more of a poacher scoring tight angles, headers and penalties. I like him way more than Werner and for 30M he'd be worth the risk for sure.

He isn't bad player but I don't see him as striker for City and less Agüero🇦🇷 replacement. If City sign him my feeling will be like Jovic🇷🇸 going to Real Madrid. Exactly same. Doing well in Frankfurt and then in a big team…failure. I hope I'm wrong if at the end City signs him

IMO any player willing to learn and adapt and even grow with the club should be given a chance, cos what's the use of getting a player a coach can't coach. look for all its worth Andre Silva for me is better than Kane cos he'll learn, adapt and will become a fine play under pep

That’s tempting ya know 😬 very cheap and it’s a experiment if Dortmund Or Spurs don’t sell for the right price 🤷♂️
