EXCLUSIVE: Marco Silva torn over Fulham future as in-demand boss has bargain release clause in contract | The SunJune 20, 2023
MARCO SILVA remains in two minds over signing an extension at Fulham this summer.
The Craven Cottage boss is under contract in West London until June 2024, and has recently been in talks over his future with the club.
However, SunSport understands that the Portuguese coach is still considering his options and will not be rushed into committing to a new long-term deal.
Silva, 45, is happy at Fulham, but has made it clear that he expects major improvements to his current squad in order to push on from last season’s impressive top ten finish.
There are also concerns regarding keeping hold of their best players, with £50m-rated midfielder Palhinha a major target for Europa Conference League champions West Ham.
It emerged last month that Silva has a £6m release clause in his Fulham package – something the club are all too aware of with his rising reputation in England.

Silva was linked with several big jobs throughout the previous campaign, including Tottenham and West Ham.
David Moyes is expected to stay with the Hammers for at least the beginning of the new season, while Spurs have hired Ange Postecoglou from Celtic.

But Silva’s brilliant work with Fulham has not gone unnoticed at other big sides, and could be at the top of several lists should vacancies appear in the coming months.
Silva replaced Scott Parker at Fulham back in July 2021 and guided Fulham to promotion by winning the Championship that season.
