The agent of PSG defender Thiago Silva has confirmed that the player will be staying put next season despite heavy speculation linking him with a move away, Sky Sports reports.

The Brazilian international completed a big money move from AC Milan last summer and has been instrumental in the club’s first Ligue 1 victory since 1994 as well as their good run in the Champions League, but recently he has been linked with a move to Spanish giants Barcelona.

However, the players agent, Paulo Tonietto, has rushed to dispel those rumours by claiming the player is happy to stay in the French capital.

“Silva’s future? It is at PSG, there is nothing more to say. He signed a contract one year ago, so it is out of the question that he will leave,” he told French newspaper L’Equipe.

“Could a possible departure of (Carlo) Ancelotti change that? I don’t think so. The presence of Carlo had a big impact when Thiago signed for PSG, but they are not linked. Thiago would be disappointed if he left, but life for PSG and Thiago would go on without Ancelotti.

“Interest from Barca? What interest? Have you seen a proposition from Barca? I haven’t, neither has Thiago nor PSG.

“If PSG were to sell there would be a lot of clubs interested. But to me it would be a huge surprise. His future is at PSG.”
