Juventus favourites to sign Silva

Reported Chelsea target Thiago Silva could be off to Juventus when his contract expires next summer. The Brazil international has no desire to extend his stay at Paris Saint-Germain.

Silva, 32, has fallen out with Les Parisiens' hierarchy after they declined his request to participate for Brazil at the Olympic games in Rio.

According to Tuttosport, the centre-half has approached his agent over a move back to Serie A, where he spent three years with AC Milan between 2009 and 2012.

Juventus chief Giuseppe Marotta has recently hinted that Silva could be the new 'Pirlo' for his side, and an agreement could well be on the cards in the New Year.

As of now, Silva is free to sign a pre-contract with a club overseas once he approaches the final six months of his contract at Parc des Princes.

Silva has turned out over 160 times for Paris Saint-Germain since arriving from Milan four years ago. He currently owns the captain's armband at the French champions.
