Milan’s Thiago Silva not for sale

Milan have made it clear that they would not consider an offer from Barcelona for key defender Thiago Silva.

The Brazilian international has been paired with the European champions with some consistency over the last 24 months.

However, speaking ahead of tonight’s clash at San Siro, Vice-President Adriano Galliani has insisted the currently injured stopper is going nowhere.

“If Barcelona ask for Thiago Silva then I will politely respond that he is not for sale,” the official noted this afternoon.

Barcelona will start their Champions League quarter-final against the Rossoneri as favourites, but Galliani believes in his outfit.

“I always watch Barcelona games, they are a fantastic side and I really like the way they play football,” the former Lega Calcio chief noted.

“They have many champions playing for them and they will be favourites, but, in football, favourites sometimes lose.”
