Silva has been the subject of transfer interest from Barcelona recently but the player himself has committed his future to current club AC Milan.
In an interview with Ansa, Silva hailed the Milan's recent success and emphasised his desire to continue his career at San Siro.
He said: "We won the title and the Super Cup and now we're top of the table as we wanted to be. I'm delighted with 2011.
"It's tough playing every three days and sometimes I'm so tired I don't even want to train. But it's the life I wanted and I can't complain.
"This is the best moment in my career. In 2016, I want to talk to Galliani and sign for another 5 years. We'll see.
The 27-year-old recently became the first foreign skipper of the Rossoneri since Nils Liedholm in 1961 when he led the team out against Chievo in November and Silva is relishing the opportunity to lead the team again.
He continued: "Until recently, I had no desire at all to be captain. Then I captained Brazil and I changed my mind. When Allegri told me, I thought he was joking. Pato and Antonini have both played more games than me.
"Now I want the armband. I feel like a leader. Ambrosini, Seedorf, Gattuso and Abbiati are ahead of me, we'll see what happens in the New Year but I like to be the first foreigner to captain the team in 50 years.
Thiago Silva signed for the Rossoneri in 2008, making his debut for the club at the start of the 2009-10 season.
