AC Milan boss Carlo Ancelotti expects no sales to make room for new signing Thiago Silva.

Due to the limits on non-EU players, Milan will not be able to field Fluminense defender Thiago Silva until next season.

"He is a great central defender who was voted Brazilian player of the year last term. Right now he is the best player around," said Carletto.

"Milan have made an excellent investment for the future. In the meantime he will train with the squad and can play in friendly games."
