Thiago Silva's move to PSG now hinges on the say-so of AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi. Berlusconi has pulled back from negotiations and asked PSG for a few days to consider their €47 million offer.
The Milan president knows he needs the cash to balance the books, but has been stung by the backlash from fans, players and ex-players over the proposed move.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been following the developments from the Euros and texted Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani last night: "This is not good."
PSG remain confident the deal will happen, though Berlusconi will speak to his advisers, including son Piersilvio and daughter Barbara, before making a final decision.
