Sporting Lisbon star Adrien Silva has admitted he would like to play in French Ligue 1 amidst interest from Monaco.
With coach Leonardo Jardim leaving the Lions to take over the reigns at Stade Louis II, it is believed he is hoping to get reunited with his star player in the Principality.
And considering that Adrien Silva was born in France, the player appears open to the possibility of moving back to his native country.
“Monaco? Even I was surprised by the news. At this time there is talk of many things,” Silva told A Bola TV.
“To play in France in the future? It would be interesting for the simple fact that my family is there and I could live with them again.”
Despite starting his career at Estadio Jose Alvalade, the 25-year-old was forced to prove his worth during loan spells with Maccabi Haifa and Academica before finally nailing down a regular starting berth at Sporting.
Silva enjoyed an excellent season under Leonardo Jardim, scoring 8 goals in 28 league matches to help Sporting secure Champions League qualification.
The highly rated midfielder is on the verge of breaking into the national team set-up, having received a call-up in September 2013, but he is yet to be handed his debut.
