According to a report courtesy of Foot Mercato, Leicester City could be set to release Adrien Silva despite having one year remaining on his contract, with manager Brendan Rodgers allegedly keen to get him off the wage bill as the Premier League season gets underway.
Indeed, the 31-year-old midfielder is a steady 26-cap international, making his debut for Portugal back in 2014, and a move to the Premier League was intended to elevate an already impressive career.
Should Leicester offload Silva for free?
Yes, just get rid
No, we need a fee for him
However, after more than two years at the King Power Stadium, Silva’s time could be coming to an end, with French news outlet Foot Mercato claiming that the £7.2m-valued colossus could be axed with a contract termination.
The piece claims that he may well be a bargain signing for other clubs, especially when taking into account his impressive international record, and there are allegedly some suitors waiting in the wings. CSKA and Spartak Moscow are apparently interested in a swoop, while two Qatari clubs are also monitoring his situation.
However, Silva isn’t keen on a move to any of these prospective clubs and is waiting on an offer from a more elite club in a competitive European division.
The midfielder is reportedly determined to work his way back into the Portugal squad for Euro 2020, with a move away from Leicester certainly on the cards amid news of potential early termination of his contract.
