The Gazzetta dello Sport is suggesting that Paris Saint-Germain’s move for Thiago Silva of Milan is still possible.
The two clubs held talks earlier this month about the stopper, with the French club apparently willing to offer almost €50m for the player.
Milan considered his sale, but President Silvio Berlusconi then opted against sacrificing the Brazilian international.
However, the player is now keen to be handed a new contract at San Siro which would see him earn as much as what Paris SG were offering him.
PSG are understood to have tempted him with a switch to Ligue 1 with a five-year deal worth €7.5m a campaign.
If Milan fail to meet his demands, there is a possibility that Thiago Silva could request a transfer and end up in France before the transfer window closes.
