AC Milan are pulling back from plans of selling Thiago Silva to PSG over pressure from their major stars. Sportmediaset says should Thiago Silva be sold, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Kevin-Prince Boateng could soon follow. Antonio Cassano also warned yesterday he may quit should the deal happen.

Ibrahimovic has already stated Milan need "four to five new players to be competitive" and won't be impressed should the best defender be cashed in.

And Boateng has attracted admiring glances from Real Madrid and Manchester United since the end of the season and is another not interested in battling for just a Europa League place in the future,
