Juventus could move for Thiago Silva

Juventus are monitoring the future of PSG captain Thiago Silva and could make a Bosman move for the 32-year-old next summer.

Silva’s contract is due to expire at the end of the season and there has been speculation that he could leave PSG if there is no offer of a new deal before the end of 2016.

The Brazil international has experience of playing in Italy after spending three years at AC Milan, and Juventus chief executive Giuseppe Marotta admits they are open to the idea of signing the centre-half.

“Thiago Silva is an exceptional player and I don’t know what PSG’s intentions are for the future,” Marotta told Rai.

“It could be an opportunity like we had in the past to go for [Andrea] Pirlo. A player considered by many to be ‘finished’, but proved to be a great deal on a free transfer for us.”

PSG spent around £40m to land Silva from Milan in the summer of 2012 and he has helped the French outfit to four successive Ligue 1 titles.
