Thiago Silva: Is set to stay at PSG, according to his agent

The Brazil international only moved to the Parc Des Princes last summer in a bumper €42million (£36.3million) move from AC Milan.

That has not stopped rumours linking the former Fluminense star with a move to La Liga giants Barcelona, who tried to sign him from Milan in 2012.

Earlier this month PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi was forced to publicly deny rumours Silva was on the brink of a move to the Nou Camp and re-iterated that he was not for sale.

Silva himself admitted last week that a move to Barcelona would be a "dream", but refused to push for a move away from PSG.

His agent, Paulo Tonietto, has now moved to try and end the rumours once and for all by insisting Silva will see out the remaining four years of his contract at the Ligue 1 champions.

"Thiago Silva is a Paris Saint-Germain player, he is under contract and he will honour that," he told the club's official website.

"Rumours are rife, as they were last year, but he is a Paris Saint-Germain player and he will see out his contract."
