Berlusconi contemplating selling Milan as Barca come calling for Thiago Silva
According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona FC may be able to sign main target Thiago Silva cheaper than expected as Silvio Berlusconi ponders selling Italian giants AC Milan after the recent problems involving the match fixing allegations across Italy.
New Barcelona coach, Tito Vilanova, has previously expressed his interest in Silva as he looks to strengthen his squad and Silva, a key player for Milan as he can play both as a central defender and a central midfielder, came top of his list. However, the Spanish giants believe that he is not worth anymore than 35 or 40 million Euros.
Former Italian prime minister, Berlusconi, is considering leaving the Rossonieri club after having owned them since 1986. His thoughts are that with the current match fixing scandal and worldwide financial problems, this seems like the sensible time to potentially call it a day.
