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."

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
