Tonietto denies meeting with Spanish champions.
Thiago Silva’s agent, Paulo Tonietto, has denied reports suggesting that he has already met with Barcelona chiefs to discuss the future of his client, according to Sky Sports.
Silva has been linked with a move to the Spanish champions all summer, with several reports suggesting that a deal was already done, if not in the process of being so.
However, Tonietto reacted angrily to claims that he had flown into Barcelona to speak with their director Raul Sanllehi, something that he insists isn’t true.
“It is not true,” he told RAC 1 radio station.
“I do not know if Raul is short, tall, fair, blond, brown-haired… I just do not know him. I do not know who Raul is, so it is just not true.”
He also said that if any interested parties were to make a move for the 28-year-old then they would need to talk to the club first and not him.
“If Barcelona were interested then they would have to speak to PSG, not to me,” he added.
“It is very difficult to see it happening though because he has a contract with Paris and they do not want to sell.
“Nobody has talked to PSG and nobody is negotiating with them or with us.”
