Thiago Silva: 'I'm happy at Milan'

Thiago Silva has point-blank refused he's in talks with Barcelona. “I am very happy at Milan and don't think they're too far off Barça.”

The defender sparked controversy and front page headlines when he apparently told Brazilian television that he had spoken to the Blaugrana.

“The truth is that there has never been anything concrete between Barcelona and I,” he told Arena Sport cameras.

“I am very happy to be playing for Milan. If I wasn't, then I would not have renewed my contract to June 2016.

“Barcelona are a side that everyone talks about, because they play spectacular football and are the champions of Europe.

“However, I don't think Milan are too far off Barça.”
