PSG star still 'dreams' of playing for Barcelona

Paris Saint-Germain defender Thiago Silva has revealed how he always dreamed of playing for Barcelona, before reiterating his commitment to the Ligue 1 leaders, reports El Mundo Deportivo.

The 28-year-old Brazilian international played a starring role against his boyhood heroes in Tuesday's 2-2 draw at Parc des Princes, and is relishing next week's Champions League quarter-final second leg clash at the Camp Nou.

Silva was heavily linked with a move to the Spanish giants prior to linking up with Carlo Ancelotti at PSG, after he left AC Milan in a reported €42million deal last summer.

"Barca was and always is a team that has made me dream since I was little and for which I would like to play," he told Spanish daily El Mundo Deportivo. "It is not a secret. 

"But now I am devoting myself to PSG, who I am under contract with."

Silva penned a five-year contract with PSG in the summer - worth a reported €14million-per-year - following his old Milan team-mate Zlatan Ibrahimovic to the French capital in a multi-million-pound deal.

However, the transfer could have turned out differently after the South American stopper explained that his agent did hold preliminary talks about a move to Barcelona before his San Siro exit.

"When Barcelona came last summer I was already in talks with PSG," he said in an interview with L'Equipe last week. "I had even given my word to Leonardo that if I would leave Milan, it would be to sign at Paris."
