AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani admits they're coming under immense pressure to keep hold of Thiago Silva. Corriere dello Sport says the Rossoneri could capitulate if the offers go up to around €40m. Real Madrid, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain have joined Barcelona in the bidding.

"We must resist a genuine siege for Thiago Silva, as a queue of European clubs are ready to go crazy for the Brazilian," Milan Vice-President Galliani told the Gazzetta dello Sport.
