Thiago Silva: PSG defender being chased by Barcelona

Brazil international Silva, 28, helped PSG to the Ligue 1 title after signing from AC Milan on a five-year contract last summer but Barca are determined to strengthen their squad with a world-class centre-back ahead of a title defence.

Rosell is sure coach Tito Vilanova rates the player highly and would fully support a bid but is concerned PSG's cash-rich owners, the Qatar Investment Authority, would have no reason to listen to offers.

Speaking to Catalan television channel 8tv on Monday night, Rosell was quoted on Marca.com as saying: "Thiago Silva is a player we want - the board as much as the coach. When it comes to him, the price is not an issue.

"We are negotiating with people for whom money is not a factor. And if they're not willing to sit down and talk, we can't do anything.

"It's a matter of the player convincing them to come over here and start negotiating."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
