PSG president closes door on potential Thiago Silva exit


Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser al-Khelaifi has closed the door on Thiago Silva leaving to join Barcelona.

The Spanish champions are believed to have been tracking the Brazil captain ever since last summer, when he almost moved to Camp Nou rather than the Parc des Princes.

However, it seems that any potential deal could prove impossible after a statement on Friday evening from Nasser al-Khelaifi.

"He is one of our most important players and therefore will take the captain’s armband, both on and off the field," Globoesporte quoted the PSG president as saying.

"Last season he was extraordinary and the fans are crazy about him. Thiago Silva is priceless."

Thiago Silva has had to deny having an agreement in place with Barcelona as speculation continues to grow.

A statement released on Thursday read: "Thiago Silva and his agent Paulo Tonietto deny any agreement regarding a transfer to Barcelona, as had been published by Spanish newspaper Sport.

"Besides, we reaffirm that no meeting or agreement with the Catalan club took place, and that the player is under contract with PSG."

Brazil defender Adriano recently claimed that his compatriot wanted to join him at the Camp Nou.
