Serie A - Milan: Thiago Silva not for sale
AC Milan insist that Barcelona target Thiago Silva is not for sale as the two clubs prepare to meet in their Champions League tie.
The Brazil defender has been a fundamental part of the Rossoneri's run to the quarter-finals in Europe and their long-held lead in Serie A as they bid to retain their domestic title.
The 27-year-old has been linked with moves to several other top European clubs including Barca, who travel to the San Siro for the first leg of their tie on Wednesday.
Milan vice president Adriano Galliani is adamant that his star centre-back – who misses the tie with a injury – will not be leaving the club in the summer.
Galliani told Gazzetta dello Sport: "If [Barcelona president] Sandro Rosell asks me for Thiago Silva, I will reply that the player is not for sale."
