Thiago Silva has called Carlos Tevez to join Milan. “This is the right place and we await him with open arms.”
This week the Rossoneri confirmed they had agreed personal terms with the striker, to arrive on loan with an option to buy in June, and are waiting for Manchester City’s response.
“Tevez is a player who makes the difference,” Thiago Silva told Sky Sport Italia.
“If he wants a team who can win everything, then this is the right place and we await him with open arms.”
There is competition, though, as Paris Saint-Germain have dived into the race and could offer more favourable terms to City.
Thiago Silva is no stranger to transfer rumours either, as he has repeatedly been linked with Barcelona.
“I am calm and think only of winning the Scudetto. There are many important players in this team who want the role of captain, but it would make me very happy.
“Wearing the captain’s armband is, for me, the most important objective at the moment. I want to play my entire career with this Milan jersey.”
His contract ties him to the San Siro giants until June 2016.
