Thiago Silva not leaving Paris Saint-Germain, says agent

The Brazil international has been linked with a move to Barcelona, but his representative has insisted that a summer move is out of the question

Paulo Tonietto, Thiago Silva’s agent, has insisted that the Brazil international will not leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer amid reported interest from Barcelona.

The Liga champions have supposedly earmarked the centre-back as the perfect addition to their defence ahead of the 2013-14 campaign, but his representative has stressed that the 28-year-old’s future is at PSG.

"Have you seen a proposal from Barca? Well, neither have I... There would be a lot of interest if PSG were willing to sell, but that would be a huge surprise to me. His future lies at Paris Saint-Germain," he told L’Equipe.

"He signed a contract here just one year ago and it is out of the question that he leaves. That's all there is to it.

"He would be disappointed if [Carlo] Ancelotti left PSG, but his future does not depend on Ancelotti."

Thiago Silva has a contract with the Ligue 1 champions until June 2017.
