PSG's Thiago Silva set to hand in transfer request - report
Thiago Silva is still set to hand in a transfer request at PSG despite an official statement stating otherwise according to reports in Spain.
The player's agent had released a statement on PSG's official website insisting that Silva will honour his contract at the club.
But Diario Sport, a notable Catalan paper, claim that the Brazilian will go ahead with pushing through a move by handing in an official transfer request.
They also say that Silva has verbally agreed a five-year deal with Barcelona and will do what is necessary to complete the move.
The PSG centre-back has long been linked with a move to Barcelona and with the imminent arrival of Roma's Marquinhos, that looks set to be the case.
