AC Milan have reiterated their desire to keep hold of Thiago Silva, with The Times of Malta reporting on their confidence that the defender will stay.
Despite the season only just coming to a close, there has already been speculation that Silva could be on his way out of the San Siro, with Premier League duo Chelsea and Manchester City monitoring the situation.
However, speaking about Silva’s future, Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri said: “I am convinced that Thiago Silva will stay.”
“Club president Silvio Berlusconi wants to see Milan remain at the highest level and he will do everything to keep Thiago at Milan.”
He then went on to describe him as the ‘strongest defender in Europe’ and someone who the club will fight very hard to keep.
The contract situation for Milan plays into their favour – Silva is committed to the club until 2016 – but the interest in him could end up being too much to resist.
With the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona also rumoured to be interested in securing his signature, one offer could start a bidding war with one inevitable outcome.
However, for now, Silva is a AC Milan player and Allegri is confident it can stay this way.
As we know though, a lot could change between now and the start of the 2012/2013 Serie A season.
