Thiago Silva has completed his big money move to French side PSG for £33 million | Transfer News
Both AC Milan and PSG have now confirmed that Thiago Silva is now a PSG player. The Brazilian defender, who just weeks ago, said that he would stay at AC Milan, completed his medical at PSG and the deal was completed.
Thiago Silva has signed a five year contract which would get him a little less than £6 million per year. Silva, now 27, is expected to be joined by his AC Milan teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic before the transfer window closes.
And with this transfer, Thiago Silva has become the second most expensive defender after Manchester United’s Rio Ferdinand who cost United £35 million to take him from Leeds United in 2002. The next on the list is Dani Alves, who is just behind Thiago Silva.
Carlo Ancelotti, the current boss of PSG has already acquired Lavezzi from Napoli and is looking to buy more players in the summer transfer window.
Thiago Silva has quite a season with AC Milan last year as he was voted the defender of the year in Serie A.
