Zlatan Ibrahimovic was rumored to be going to Juventus. But recent Juventus has been looking more at Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuain. A good sign according to Zlatans teammate Thiago Silva.
– This is good news. It means that Zlatan probably is not leaving PSG.
Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic left Italian Milan together this season. They headed for Paris Saint-Germain, and once there, they won the French league title and made it to the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
The Brazilian defense giant would like to continue playing with the Swede. That he makes clear in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport. When Thiago Silva was asked what he thinks about the rumors surrounding Gonzalo Higuain move to Juventus, he immediately started talking about Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
– This is good news. It means that Zlatan Ibrahimovic probably does not leave PSG. I have not spoken to him in a few days but I would love to keep him by my side at PSG. Perhaps along with Wayne Rooney, says Silva.
On Sunday Silva met just Rooney when Brazil played a training match against England. There he was struggling with the English striker, who in turn is rumored to join PSG. Thiago Silva could not do anything about Rooney’s goal.
– Mamma mia, he is strong. Every time I meet him, it’s a struggle, says Silva to Gazzetta dello Sport.
But Wayne Rooney does not reach Silva’s list of the best strikers in the world. When asked what he thinks of Mario Balotelli rampage in Silva’s former club Milan Silva responds:
– I had placed Balotelli just behind Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic if I were to make a list of the best strikers.
