AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani has conceded that several teams have expressed an interest in Thiago Silva, but has vowed to keep the Brazilian at the San Siro club.
The 27-year-old has been widely linked with a move away from his current employers, and has been mooted as a possible solution to Barcelona's defensive worries, while Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain are also believed to be interested in making a move for him.
However, Galliani has promised that that he will do everything in his power to keep the star centre-half at his current club, despite the number of suitors.
"I have to resist the assaults on Thiago Silva. There is a row of clubs across Europe who are ready to do crazy things for the Brazilian," he revealed to Tuttosport.
Thiago Silva joined AC from Fluminese and has since become an irreplaceable part of the club's defence.
