Thiago Silva has caused controversy by claiming “it's Alessandro Nesta's last season with Milan.”
The defenders form a solid partnership at the back and Nesta seems to have recovered fully from his injury problems.
“It's a shame, as in my view it's Sandro's last season with Milan,” the Brazilian told Sportitalia television.
“It would be a great shame to see him go at the end of the current campaign.”
There had been reports that Nesta was considering an end to his career where it began, back at Lazio.
He has been at San Siro since 2002 and will be 35 by the time the next season kicks off.
