Paris Saint-Germain centre-back Thiago Silva has revealed that he dreams of seeing out his career at former club AC Milan.
The Brazil international, who is expected to start in the five-time champions’ opening World Cup fixture against Switzerland on Sunday, spent three seasons with the Rossoneri after joining from Fluminense in 2009.
Silva departed Milan for French champions PSG alongside fellow star Zlatan Ibrahimovic in 2012, but admitted that he holds his former club dearly and would relish a return.
“It is not easy to talk about the future, but in football it is important to never say never,” the 33-year-old told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Anything is possible. How could I possibly say no to Milan? It is a team that is in my heart and will remain there forever. To return, perhaps to see out my career there, would be a beautiful thing.”
Silva scored six goals in 119 appearances for the Rossoneri and helped the club to lift the Scudetto in 2011, as well as the Suppercoppa Italiana ahead of the 2011/12 season.
