Barcelona defender Dani Alves is continuing in his quest to bring fellow Brazilian Thiago Silva to the Camp Nou this summer.
Alves recently revealed he had spoken to the Paris Saint-Germain player in a bid to persuade him to join the Spanish champions, and has now told Radio Montecarlo that Silva is somebody Barca need for the forthcoming 2013-14 campaign.
“We need him to strengthen the team because of all the competitions we are going to be playing in. He would be coming to the best team in the world.
“I’ve described the club to him, what he would find here and the advantages of becoming a Barcelona player, explained Alves.”
