Manchester City are keeping tabs on A.C. Milan and Brazil centre-back Thiago Silva and are set to go head to head with Barcelona for the 27-year-old’s services.
Thiago Silva is regarded very highly by the Rossoneri and is perceived as one of the best defenders in the world. It is highly unlikely that Milan will let their star player leave, but according to CalcioMercato it could cost £30 million to prize him away. With Kolo Toure likely to leave the Etihad stadium it only leaves Mancini with Kompany, Lescott and Savic as centre-backs.
It will take some doing for fan’s favourite Thiago Silva to leave the San Siro; he is the backbone of Milan’s defence and to me absolutely unsalable. City will however want to test Milan’s resilience as they would not want to miss out on the possibility of signing one of the best defenders in the world. It will take a substantial amount of money and effort on City’s behalf to receive Milan’s full attention, but as we have come to witness with Sheikh Mansour, money isn’t an issue.
How do City fans feel about Thiago Silva, do you think you need him and if so is he worth all that money?
