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."

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.
