Thiago Silva has no intention of making a return to Brazil

Thiago Silva has stated he has no intention of returning to Brazil after his current contract with PSG runs out.

Just recently, PSG director Leonardo confirmed that the 35-year-old and veteran forward Edinson Cavani would be leaving the club once their contracts run out at the end of June.

That would leave the Brazilian without a club at the end of the month and a number of sides have already shown interest in his services.

It was initially reported that Everton were leading the race to sign Silva, using his relationship with his former boss Carlo Ancelotti as an advantage.

Arsenal are another side also said to be in the running for the 35-year-old as reports claim the Gunners have also initiated talks with the experienced defender.

Silva has never hidden his love for former side Fluminense and some rumors even claimed he could make a return to Brazil.

Fluminense discovered Silva as a 14-year-old and set him on a path for success well-travelled across Europe. Despite his close ties to his former side, the 35-year-old has stated that he has unfinished business in the continent.

“Everyone knows how fond I am of Fluminense because, when I was sick, they opened the doors for me. I will always be grateful for that, but I still have goals in Europe. We intend to return to France next week to resume our lives”, Silva said of his future in a recent interview.

Considering his high wages of around a week, it would make sense that the Premier League would be his next likely destination.

The latest story behind his possible transfer is that the veteran defender could be on his way to Tottenham. Spurs boss Jose Mourinho is believed to see Silva as an experienced defender who could replace Vertonghen likely to leave the club at the end of the season.

Since making his debut for PSG in 2012Silva has made 310 appearances for the club, scoring 17 times and supplying five assists.
