Thiago Silva: Has rubbished latest reports of Barcelona switch

In spite of regular claims from the Brazil international and his representative that no summer switch is in the offing, speculation regarding a move to Camp Nou persists.

It is now being suggested that an agreement has been reached with Barca - with the Catalan giants known to be long-time admirers of the centre-half.

These latest reports have been categorically denied, with Thiago bemused as to where such stories keep coming from.

The Samba star and his camp insist that no discussions have been held with Barca and that there is no desire to bring an end to a French adventure after just one year at Parc des Princes.

A statement released on Thursday read: "Thiago Silva and his agent Paulo Tonietto deny any agreement regarding a transfer to Barcelona, as had been published by Spanish newspaper Sport.

"Besides, we reaffirm that no meeting or agreement with the Catalan club took place, and that the player is under contract with PSG."
