Thiago Silva planning to retire at Paris Saint-Germain
The defensive dynamo is hoping to remain at Paris Saint-Germain for the rest of his career.
The Brazilian joined the Ligue 1 club from AC Milan in 2012 and has since won every domestic trophy on offer, including three league titles.
His contract is due to expire in 2018, but the 31-year-old is hoping he will not have to leave the club until he hangs up his boots.
“I want to finish my career here,” he said. “I need to speak with the president [Nasser Al Khelaifi] to see if he agrees or not.
“This is the city that I love, like Rio de Janeiro. I live with my family, my son grows up here. There is everything you need to live. This is a great city. Life must go on [after the Paris terrorist attacks].
“[The tributes] have been difficult, especially when we remember those images. The atmosphere was superb today. When you have a problem in your country, people are together, and that’s very important for France.”
PSG are on course for a fourth consecutive Ligue 1 title after a 4-1 win over Troyes on Saturday sent them 15 points clear at the top of the table.
