Silva commits to Milan...
Milan defender Thiago Silva has moved to put reports linking him with Real Madrid to rest as he shows his committment to the club.

Spanish reports late on Monday night claimed Real Madrid had made a bid for the Brazilian with €20 million plus Rafael van der Vaart on the table.

However, Silva insists he will not abscond to join Jose Mourinho.

"I feel fine here. I worked hard last year and I am happy with Milan," he told the club's official website.

"It's the first time I have read about this, but I don't know anything. The only thing I know is that I am focused on Milan and I want to stay here until 2014.

"I am at home with Milan, this is like my second family."
