AC Milan defender Thiago Silva has revealed an approach from Barcelona.

The Brazilian, who recently signed a new long-term contract and earlier this week claimed he would like to finish his career at the San Siro, now admits he is open to a Nou Camp switch.

"I have had contact with people from Barca," he told TV Esporte Interativo in his homeland.

"It's a really cool thing to be able to talk to them (but) now, I'm at Milan.

"It's been just two or three months since I renewed my contract, to the end of 2016, so they would have to speak directly with the club."
