Tuttosport: Hope for Milan regarding Thiago Silva return; Ibrahimovic-esque deal possible

By Oliver Fisher -

Thiago Silva is pushing hard for a return to AC Milan through his agent, a report claims, and a glimmer of hope has appeared regarding a deal.

Tuttosport reported on Sunday that although Milan will proceed with a youth project this summer based around signing young players with high potential, there could also be room for experienced players to add leadership.

The paper claimed that Thiago Silva could be a potential option as he has instructed his agent to find him a new club, with Milan and Fluminese given preference.

Now, the same outlet (via MilanLive) have confirmed that he player would return willingly to Milan and his agent is pushing to try and manufacture a move.

After eight seasons at PSG, the centre-back is ready to put on the Rossoneri shirt for one last time before ending his career at Fluminense in Brazil.

The paper adds that it must be considered that Thiago Silva is physically intact and can still make a difference in Seree A, and the experience of Ibrahimovic’s return could convince CEO Ivan Gazidis to let another player over 35 come back to San Siro.

However, Thiago Silva currently earns €12million-a-year with PSG, so he would have to take a cut in his salary in order to be able to return, but there is the hope that a deal similar to that of Ibra’s can be reached: a one-year deal with the chance of renewing if things go well.

A lot may depend on if captain Alessio Romagnoli remains too, as his departure would vastly increase Milan’s need for solid reinforcements.
