OFFICIAL: Thiago Silva Leaves Milan For Paris Saint-Germain!!

Milan has sold UEFA’s World best defender to Paris Saint-Germain…

Now it’s official – “AC Milan announces that it has sold Thiago Silva to PSG”, says Milan’s official site.

With these few posted words on the website of Milan, the Rossoneri have officially announced the passage of the Brazilian defender at the French outfit Paris Saint-Germain. Reports suggest that the deal is worth around €42 million.

The Brazil centre-back’s agent, Paulo Toniello, had indicated on Saturday morning that the transfer was still “far from” complete, but terms were agreed later in the day and the move has now been finalised.

PSG’s official site has announced the signing as well, A statement on the club’s official website read: “Thiago Silva, 27 years old, Brazilian international, from AC Milan, has this Saturday signed with Paris Saint-Germain for five seasons.”

 Thiago Silva has signed five-year contract, which will see him earn €9 million per season. This move makes the Brazilian star World’s most paid defender. The Brazil international, 27, had been linked with a move to the Parc des Princes throughout the summer, and he has now made the switch to the French capital, where he is expected to be joined by his former Milan team-mate Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Although the side were unable to retain their Scudetto crown the following campaign, he appeared to have committed his long-term future to the Rossoneri, having penned a five-year extension at the end of June.

However, with Milan’s financial problems well documented, president Silvio Berlusconi confirmed that he had accepted a bid from PSG in the region of €65 million for both the Brazilian and Ibrahimovic, despite the Ligue 1 runners-up seeing an initial bid for the stopper rejected.

But while the deal to bring in the Swede remains incomplete, Thiago Silva is now officially a PSG player and will join up with former coach Leonardo, as well as many ex-Serie A rivals, including Thiago Motta, Javier Pastore and Ezequiel Lavezzi.

  1. Thiago is a very serious loss. The Brazilian is easily one of the best players (top 3 IMMO, to say the least) in the world in his position. La Gazzetta yesterday was speculating with Rolando (FC Porto). I honestly do not know him to judge whether he is or isn’t the right player to replace TS 33.

    My favorite player in this race is Ogbonna. But I must say that Angelo can’t replace Thiago alone. The Brazilian was also responsible to connect the defence with midfiled many times and Ogbonna is not capable of this – at lesat for now.

    Angelo+Şahin=Thiago Silva. That is the right equation, IMMO.

    As for Ibrahimović, Carlito’s (all the) way. 😛 Since 2003 I’m a huge fan of him. The Argentinean is way better than the Swedish and was made for Serie A.

    PS: Huge rumor here in Brazil about Dedé going to Milanello. A battle Milan x Málaga for him. Apparently, Mr. Galliani is doing the right thing: 1) Investing the money in valid and young players, and not, with all due respect, in someone like Forlán;
    2) To act quickly to avoid the prices to go up and up…


    • This is a huge loss for Milan – in my opinion it equals the one for Kaka. Just a black hole that even after 3 seasons still can’t be fulfilled I hardly believe that we’ll manage to avoid those circumstances even this time… However, I like your suggestion – Ogbonna+Sahin (or maybe another DMF).
      Regarding Dede.. I don’t know. I have never seen him play, so I can’t say if he’s the right man to replace Silva. But let’s see what kind of surprise have Berlo & Gallliani prepared this time…
