AC Milan defender Thiago Silva insists he's not chasing money over his imminent move to PSG.

The deal would be worth €42m plus another €5m in bonuses, added to a contract worth €12m per season.

"I don't think about money, as that is not an issue for me," Thiago Silva told magazine Chi.

"My strength is my family and above all God. I am a devoted Christian and also have a tattoo on my arm confirming I am a son of the Lord.

"In our Brazilian team we have in my view one of the top three strikers in the world, Alexandre Pato. I only hope he rediscovers his fitness.

"I send a sincere wish of good luck to the Italy side and my part-Italian, part-Brazilian, part-crazy friend Antonino Cassaninho. He's a phenomenon."
