AC Milan: We won't be selling Silva

AC Milan have denied that the Brazil international Thiago Silva is for sale, but the player's agent insists he has held transfer talks with French club Paris St Germain.

• PSG close on Thiago Silva

Reports in France suggested that big-spending PSG had increased their offer for the defender to £40 million, with Adriano Galliani, the AC Milan vice-president, on his way to France to finalise the deal.

But the Italian club's sporting director, Ariedo Braida, told Sky Italia: "Be calm. We will not sell Thiago."

Silva is under contract to Milan until June 2016, so the club are under no pressure to sell. However, Silva's agent, Paolo Tonietto, claimed talks with PSG had taken place.

"Negotiations have existed between Milan and Paris St Germain,'' Tonietto told tuttomercatoweb.com. "But I don't know if Milan will sell him. Should Milan decide to sell him, it would be the best time for Thiago to change clubs.''

Silva is also a reported target for Manchester City, Chelsea and Barcelona. "The top clubs in Europe have expressed to AC Milan an interest in Thiago,'' Tonietto said.

"But almost all of them thought that Milan would never sell him, also because we are talking about one of the most important elements of Milan's squad.''
