Marco Silva Will Not Countenance Richarlison Sale
Everton boss Marco Silva says he will not entertain the idea of selling Brazilian forward Richarlison this summer, despite apparent interest from AC Milan.
Richarlison joined the Toffees from Watford last summer and has impressed on Merseyside, forcing his way into the Brazil team in the process.
Silva says he is trying to build something at the club and is not looking for a quick profit on the man they bought for just over £40m last summer.
“We are not thinking of selling him and, second, our fans - I am 100% sure - would not accept this," Silva said.
"The player is really happy here, he is enjoying every moment here, we are really happy with him and he has many things to keep improving in his game and many things for us to keep working on with him.
“But, we as a club, do not put a price on him, it is important we keep him and all the others too and keep building an identity in our club. We have to keep our best players.
“If you look at the last few seasons at our club, some really important players in the dressing room with that Everton identity and either not playing so many games or have left the club.”
