Paris Saint-Germain to offer AC Milan €68 million for Thiago Silva and Pato - report

The Ligue 1 side are said to have made their interest in the two players clear during a meeting with Rossoneri CEO Adriano Galliani at Roland Garros on Tuesday
Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly willing to hand over a combined total of €68 million in order to persuade AC Milan to part company with Thiago Silva and Alexandre Pato.

Rossoneri CEO Adriano Galliani travelled to the French capital on Tuesday to take in Simone Bolelli's French Open clash with Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros.

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, sporting director Leonardo and coach Carlo Ancelotti were also in attendance and they talked numbers with Galliani regarding Thiago Silva and Pato, according to Il Corriere dello Sport.

The latter very nearly moved to Parc des Princes during the January transfer window, only to ultimately reject the opportunity to join the Ligue 1 outfit, but the Parisians remain prepared to pay €28m for the forward.

The paper also claims that PSG are now intent on signing Pato's compatriot and will test Milan's resolve to hold onto the defender with a bid of €40m.

Pato has been plagued by a persistent thigh problem over the past 12 months but netted for the Selecao in their 4-1 win over United States on Wednesday, while Thiago Silva is regarded as one of the best defenders in the world at the moment.
