Thiago Silva: Leaves transfer talk to his agent

Thiago Silva: Leaves transfer talk to his agent

The Brazil international defender moved from AC Milan to PSG last summer despite talk of interest from Barca and claims the Catalan club failed to firm up their interest since then.

"I have always told my agent to tell me nothing while there is nothing concrete, especially if a competition is underway as that bothers me," Silva told Globo Esporte.

"We have a very good relationship, but if he has told me nothing, it's because there is nothing concrete."

"There was speculation and talks with Barcelona last year but unfortunately they didn't continue, nothing has come this year and I am very calm regarding these transfer related things."

He added: "Any player dreams of playing for Barcelona, but I am very happy at PSG at the moment.

"I have always wanted to play for a big club in Europe and thank God I have achieved everything I wanted to in my life, at both a personal and professional level, as I fought hard to get there."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
