Milan still great – even without Silva

Milan are still a big club despite the sale of Thiago Silva to Paris Saint-Germain, the Brazilian’s agent has stated.

The Rossoneri have sold the South American for €42m and they are also set to sacrifice Zlatan Ibrahimovic to the French giants.

“Milan are a serious outfit,” Paulo Tonietto told TMW on Tuesday. “With or without Thiago Silva, as well as any other player, they will not stop being a great club. They have great fans and great directors.

“I would like to thank Milan myself and on behalf of Thiago – they will always remain in our heart.

“As for PSG, they have a great project to do well in Ligue 1, but especially in Europe.”

Tonietto was then asked about the possibility of a return to San Siro one day for the accomplished centre-back.

“Thiago wants to play the last season of his career with Fluminense in Brazil,” the agent continued. “He would have no problem, however, in wearing the Rossoneri shirt again.

“That is some time away for now though…”
