Al-Khelaifi: PSG will not sell Silva
By Football News
Thiago Silva will not join Barcelona, according to Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.
The Brazil centre-back has been linked with a move to La Liga champions through the off-season after a series of impressive performances for the Parisian giants during their title-winning campaign.
But Al-Khelaifi has insisted that the club have no intention of discussing a transfer as they look to build on their first league title triumph since 1994.
"Thiago Silva is not for sale, he will stay at the club until the end of his contract," he told Sport.
"The problem is not that Barca are not offering us enough money, the problem is we don't want to negotiate his sale."
"We won't evaluate it or contemplate it. We won't even sit down to negotiate.
"Selling is exactly the opposite of what we want to do. Our intention, after winning the domestic league title, is to fight for other more ambitious goals and make more signings."
