Thiago Silva: Brazil international has been linked with a move to Barcelona

Paulo Tonietto was clearly irritated by rumours that he had met Barca director Raul Sanllehi about a switch for the Brazil international defender to Camp Nou this summer.

"It is not true," he told RAC 1 radio station.

"I do not know if Raul is short, tall, fair, blond, brown-haired... I just do not know him. I do not know who Raul is, so it is just not true."

After weeks of seeing Thiago Silva linked to Barca in Spain and France, Tonietto is adamant that the clubs would hold initial discussions before speaking to him.

"If Barcelona were interested then they would have to speak to PSG, not to me," he added.

"It is very difficult to see it happening though because he has a contract with Paris and they do not want to sell.

"Nobody has talked to PSG and nobody is negotiating with them or with us."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
