CdS: Thiago Silva says ‘si!’ to Fiorentina move

Thiago Silva has agreed to join Fiorentina when he leaves Paris Saint-Germain, Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport claims.

36-year-old Silva will lead PSG one last time on Sunday when they face Bayern Munich in their first ever Champions League final.

After that, he will be on the move, with a host of clubs being linked with the Brazilian veteran.

On Wednesday, it was reported that Frank Lampard has been offered the chance to take Silva to Chelsea.

However, Corriere dello Sport reports that Silva is just ‘one step away’ from becoming a Fiorentina player.

Their information is that Silva, in silence and under the radar, has been house-hunting in Florence.

Fiorentina entered talks with Silva in June and it appears their persistence may have paid off.

Silva has been promised an important role and a contract worth €4m-per-season plus bonuses.

The presence of France winger Franck Ribery’s at the Viola is believed to have been an influence in his decision.

Silva follows Ribery on Instagram and they will soon be teammates if this report is to be believed.

Fiorentina had the second youngest side in Serie A last season behind only AC Milan, and Silva would bring a wealth of experience to Giuseppe Iachini’s team.
