Le10Sport: PSG turn to another Milan star in hopes of replacing outgoing veteran

By Oliver Fisher -

Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo has seven names on his list of possible candidates to replace Thiago Silva, a report claims, with a Milan star one of them.

Thiago Silva’s contract is about to expire and he will leave the Parisian club at the end of the season, possibly at the end of the month depending on whether or not he signs an extension to carry on with PSG until the end of the current Champions League campaign.

According to le10sport.com, there are seven profiles followed by Leonardo to replace the Brazil international, and among those is Rossoneri captain Alessio Romagnoli.

The other candidates include Fiorentina centre-back and reported Milan target Nikola Milenkovic, as well as Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly, Inter’s Milan Skriniar plus Bayern Munich trio Lucas Hernandez, David Alaba and Jerome Boateng.

It is not the first time the same outlet has linked PSG with Romagnoli, but the vast majority of Italian outlets are in agreement that he is likely to extend his current deal with Milan, set to expire in 2022.
