Paris St Germain defender Thiago Silva has said that he is not worried over the talk surrounding his future at the club, Sky Sports reports.

The 28-year-old joined the French champions last summer from AC Milan for a fee of £38.4 million that saw him reunited with coach Carlo Ancelotti, who he had worked under whilst in Italy.

Ancelotti has been linked with a move away from the Parc Des Princes this summer with Real Madrid mooted as a likely destination, and rumours have circulated that the Brazilian centre back could seek to follow the former Chelsea man away from Paris with Barcelona said to be heavily interested in landing his signature.

The French club’s chairman, Nasser al-Khelaïfi, is apparently reluctant to let the player go and because he still has four years left to run on his lucrative deal he has moved to block any offers that come his way.

However, Silva has reiterated that he is focussed on Brazil’s upcoming Confederations Cup campaign later this month and though he didn’t rule out a move away in the future he did deny that he would be looking to follow Ancelotti out of the club.

“I am only concerned about my immediate future, which is the Confederations Cup,” he told L’Equipe. “About a transfer? I am calm; I’m leaving that to one side so far.

“I am happy at PSG. Yes, I came to PSG because of the presence of [director of football] Leonardo and Carlo Ancelotti, but that doesn’t mean I would leave [if they did].”
