Thiago Silva reiterates desire to end career at Fluminense
Paris Saint-Germain defender Thiago Silva has reiterated his desire to end his playing career at former club Fluminense.
The 28-year-old, who was a Flu fan whilst growing up, spent two and half years at the Brazilian club and even trained with them as a youngster.
AC Milan signed the defender for €10 million in 2009 and PSG have since paid €42 million for his services, but Silva is still thinking about a return to Brazil.
He told Globo Esporte: "If I say that I don’t think about returning to Fluminense then I would be a liar.
"I don’t know if I’ll return after my contract with PSG expires, or if I will end up somewhere else.
"I have talked about a few things with my agent, saying that I’m thinking about finishing my career where football all began for me."
The Seleção captain spent four months in hospital with tuberculosis in 2005, during a short loan spell at Dynamo Moscow.
Silva feels indebted to Fluminense as they gave him a chance to rebuild his playing career.
"After the illness, Fluminense were the club that gave me the support to play," he added.
Fluminense are currently in first place in the Brasileirão, six points ahead of Atlético Mineiro.
