Thiago Silva's agent: 'I don't know the name of Viola's sporting director'

Agent Paulo Tonietto has revealed he 'doesn’t even know the name' of Fiorentina’s sporting director but revealed another Italian side were interested in Chelsea defender Thiago Silva.

The former Milan centre-back moved to Chelsea on free transfer last week and his agent claimed Fiorentina was not in advanced talks with the Brazilian defender.

“They contacted us once, but months ago,” he told Tuttomercatoweb. “But we didn’t speak about numbers or other situations.

“I can tell you that I don’t even remember the name of the sporting director at Fiorentina, the one who called me.

“But I can tell you that another Italian side were interested in Thiago and it wasn’t even Milan.”
