Brazilian defender Thiago Silva will join Italian giants AC Milan, according to his agent.
Chelsea and Inter Milan have also been linked with the talented 22-year-old.
“Thiago Silva will be signing his contract at Milan once he gets through his medical exams that will be done next week,” said his agent Paulo Tonieto.
SilvaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s current club Fluminense wanted to keep the defender on loan, but Tonieto insists that it will not happen.
He said: “There is no chance to have Thiago Silva loaned back to Fluminense because the president of Milan doesn’t want that.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The only problem with SilvaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s move to AC Milan is that the Brazilian does not qualify for an EU passport.
Tonieto added: “There are two chances for Thiago, either he gets a place in the team because a player gets transferred or he will train with the B team until June 2009 when he will be able to be brought into the squad.Ã¢â‚¬Â
