Wolves are looking to strengthen their bid to reach the English Premier League this month by reportedly bidding more than £34 million for AC Milan striker Andre Silva – and pretty much nobody can believe it.
According to several well connected AC Milan fan websites, the Portuguese international has been approached by the Championship side who currently enjoy a strong connection with Jorge Mendes – Cristiano Ronaldo’s super-agent.
According to some reports emerging from Italy, Wolves had a bid of £34.7m rejected by AC Milan for Portuguese international forward André Silva. #wwfc is expected to make a second bid.

The Portuguese deal-maker has been influential in high-profile signings such as Ruben Neves from Porto, and it seems as though he has the next star on his wishlist.
After struggling to establish himself following his £33.5million move to the Italian giants last summer, Twitter has been awash with rumours that Wolves are willing to pay them back their initial outlay – much to a lot of peoples’ astonishment:

We're Wolverhampton, were in the championship and were making bids for Andre Silva from AC Milan. What a time to be alive

Is this really how crazy the money in England has become?
Teams in the second tier can afford to pay almost £35 million for AC Milan strikers now?!
If it hadn’t already, the game has definitely gone mad.
What do you think?
