Revealed: 67% of Newcastle fans want Silva to replace Mitrovic

Newcastle fans have been discussing making a move for Andre Silva with the Mitrovic money, and over two thirds of fans want a swoop for the Wolves target.

After months of speculation, Aleksandar Mitrovic has finally left Newcastle. The feisty Serbian simply wasn’t on the same page with Rafael Benitez, but the good news it that the Magpies have grabbed a significant fee.

According to Sky Sports, Fulham paid around £22m, potentially rising to £27m, for the 23 year-old, meaning the funds are finally there for Rafa to get his marquee number nine.

While there are still no promises from Mike Ashley, he simply must reinvest to avoid some serious strife.

Salomon Rondon has been linked as a possible replacement for “Mitro”, but Silva could be a better choice.

The young Portuguese international, who has been strongly linked with Wolves, has scored an impressive 12 goals in 26 caps for his country.

At just 22, Silva has far more room to improve than Rondon, and fans are backing a swoop. He could also be available as part of the transfer merry-go-round that has sent Gonzalo Higuain to Milan to replace him, so now is the perfect time to swoop.
