El Shaarawy sold for Thiago Silva?

There are reports Stephan El Shaarawy could join Manchester City so that Thiago Silva can return to Milan.

Vice-President Adriano Galliani warned El Shaarawy is “not off the market,” but denied rumours of talks with Manchester City or Carlos Tevez.

According to SportMediaset, the Rossoneri are considering a sale because they can reinvest that €40m cash straight away.

The money would be used to tempt Paris Saint-Germain into handing back Thiago Silva, who only left Milan for approximately €45m a year ago.

There are numerous problems, though, including the Brazilian centre-backs current €7.5m per season wages.

It would be a very strange piece of business for the Rossoneri, who paid €10m to sign Thiago Silva from Fluminense in January 2009 and sold him in July 2012 for over four times that figure.
