Thiago Silva’s agent says that the defender has yet to discuss terms with Paris Saint-Germain and that his transfer is not linked to Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s.
Reports in France and Italy have Milan pair Silva and Ibra as close to completing a transfer to PSG inside the next few days, with a combined fee of €62m reportedly agreed.
However, where Ibrahimovic’s agent has been in talks with sporting director Leonardo, Silva’s agent has revealed that he and his client have yet to talk to the Parisians.
“Nothing is concluded yet. Thiago and I have not even been invited to talk about anything and before any deal is closed we have to have our say,” Paulo Tonietto told L’Equipe today.
“Is Thiago linked to Ibrahimovic in this deal? No, the two are not related. Thiago and I do not know anything, but as soon as Ibra signs, it is up to Thiago whether or not he will also sign.”
