Barcelona long term transfer target Thiago Silva has signed a new contract with the Ligue 1 champions Paris St-Germain, according to the BBC.

Having signed for Paris St-Germain for £36 million in 2012, the Brazilian has now extended his stay at the Parc des Princes until 2018. L’Equipe reports that a €2 million-per-year increase in salary proved enough for the centre back to commit his long-term future to the French side.

Barcelona were interested in signing the centre back after Thiago’s stand-out performances at this years Confederations Cup. The 28-year-old Brazilian international’s wage demand was the only problem before the deal halted.

Barcelona have made it clear that signing a centre-back is their main priority with Carles Puyol suffering serious injuries problems all season and undergoing surgery in March. The La Liga champions have missed out on Thiago and reports suggest they have now turned their attentions to signing Chelsea’s central defender David Luiz.
