‘Thiago Silva not leaving PSG’

Thiago Silva’s agent has made clear that Paris Saint-Germain do not want to sell Thiago Silva this summer, amid links to Barcelona.

La Blaugrana have been suggested in some quarters as interested in making a move for the Brazilian centre-back in the next transfer window.

Reports have also been that the player was open to such advances and also unhappy at PSG amid speculation that Coach Carlo Ancelotti and sporting director Leonardo could both leave.

However, the player’s representative has made clear PSG’s position.

“There is no possibility that Thiago Silva will leave this summer,” Paulo Tonietto told Cadena SER this week.

“The club also does not intend to sell. They consider him to be a major footballer for their project, whether or not Carlo Ancelotti is on the bench next season.

“There has been no contact with Barca this year, but it is true that we spoke about a move before that.

“Barcelona were late then, whilst PSG also gave more money to Milan and to the player.”
