Thiago Silva won’t rule out AC Milan return

Brazil defender Thiago Silva has hinted at a move back to AC Milan.

The 33-year-old spent three seasons at San Siro before moving to Paris Saint-Germain in 2012.

And speaking on the eve of the 2018 World Cup, he has admitted to Gazzetta dello Sport he would be tempted by a move back to Italy.

“(It’s) never easy to talk about the future, but never say never in football. Everything is possible.

“How could I say no to Milan? It’s a team that will always be in my heart.

“To come back, maybe to end my career, would be a wonderful thing.”


Just four months ago, the defender suggested he would retire after two more seasons at the top level.

“I’m 33 years old, I have two more years to play,” he told This Is Paris.

“Then it will be (Marquinhos and Presnel Kimpembe) who take the reins and lead the team forward.”

For now, though, Silva’s full focus will be on Brazil’s World Cup campaign.
