Pogba would thrive at PSG, says Thiago Silva

The Brazilian has admitted his admiration for the midfielder, who has been constantly linked with a move to the French capital
Paris Saint-Germain captain Thiago Silva has tipped Paul Pogba to have a big future - whether it lies at Juventus or the Parc des Princes.

The midfielder moved to Turin two years ago but has constantly been linked with a switch away from Serie A, with PSG reportedly keen admirers of his talents.

And the Brazil international says the 21-year-old Frenchman is destined to do great things no matter where he chooses to spend his peak years.

"Pogba is a great player with a great future," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"He has personality, the right mindset and quality to establish himself at the top, anywhere."

PSG's big spending in recent years is set to earn them a hefty fine from Uefa but Thiago Silva believes that punishing ambition makes no sense.

"It's not for me to say if it should be less, but the president told us that it won't change anything," the Selecao skipper stated. "But I fell it's a strange system. PSG is a growing club."

The 29-year-old also advised former club AC Milan to sign his PSG defensive partner Alex, who is out of contract in the French capital at the end of the season.

"I highly recommend him to Milan," he added.

"Alex is a defender for really important teams. We have to wait until the end of Ligue 1 to know, but he'd certainly do well at AC Milan.

"And I would be happy to have another friend at a big club. With Clarence Seedorf, they can return to the Champions League immediately."
