Thiago Silva Close To Juventus Move

Thiago Silva is close to sealing a move to Juventus in the summer, reports the Daily Mail and it would represent his second spell in Italy having previously played their with AC Milan.

Thiago Silva has played all but one of the French champions matches this season and Juve believe they can get the defender on the cheap meaning his £100,000 a week wages would take a significant hit.

PSG could offer a potential roadblock, by triggering a one-year extension for Silva, but Tuttosport understand there is optimism that a compromise can be agreed.

The veteran defender, who has also played for Dynamo Moscow and Fluminense, continues to be a mainstay in Unai Emery’s PSG side having started all but one of their last 14 matches.

Silva has returned to the Brazil squad under manager Tite but remains a back-up to club team-mate Marquinhos and Inter Milan’s loanee centre back Miranda.

He played the full 90 minutes in Wednesday night’s Champions League draw away at Arsenal which put top spot in group A firmly in PSG’s grasp.
