Sportmediaset are reporting that Milan defender Thiago Silva has agreed to join French outfit Paris Saint-Germain for €50m.
Reports this morning suggested that the player was in Paris today to negotiate a high-cost transfer to the Ligue 1 club, whilst both the his agent and PSG’s sporting director Leonardo added fuel to such rumours with their comments.
SportMediaset are now reporting that a deal between the club and Silva has been agreed, with the Brazilian allegedly set to be handed a €9m-a-season contract in the French capital, doubling his current San Siro salary.
Meanwhile, the Rossoneri are set to receive a €50m fee to hand over his registration to the Parisians, which would be five times the amount the Italians paid Fluminense for him in 2007.
It is understood that the player has already texted teammates at Milan to inform them of his departure and to say goodbye. The 27-year-old will have a medical on Tuesday before completing the transfer.
