Thiago Silva: Wanted by Chelsea

Thiago Silva’s agent has refused to rule out the possibility of the PSG defender making the move to Manchester United – but has hinted it’s unlikely to be any time soon.

United are on the hunt to land a world-class centre-back this summer and Silva remains one of the names in the frame.

The Brazil international has also been linked with a move to Barcelona but it is thought the Catalan giants prefer Everton’s John Stones.

Silva is regarded as one of the finest defenders in the game but his agent, Paulo Tonietto, said about the player: “The future of Thiago Silva? He still has a two-year contract at PSG.

“Join Jose Mourinho at Manchester United? I have no idea. Not at the moment.”

Silva’s team-mate Marquinhos and Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane are also on United’s list of centre-back targets as they look to reshape their squad after a disappointing season.
