AC Milan chiefs Silvio Berlusconi and Adriano Galliani are stunning fans by revisiting the prospect of selling Thiago Silva. After huge celebrations and self-congratulations from the Rossoneri after they resisted a €47 million PSG offer for the Brazilian, such is the dire state of the club's finances that president Berlusconi and his No2 Galliani are to meet to discuss reigniting negotiations with the French mega spenders, says Gazzetta dello Sport.

The club powerbrokers know it would be a PR nightmare if they were to now sell Thiago Silva, but 'business is business'.

Should the deal be revived, Milan would seek talks with Palermo for Matias Silvestre as a direct replacement.
