AC Milan signing Thiago Silva: Maldini my role-model

Thiago Silva will undergo his AC Milan medical later today.

The Fluminense defender touched down in Italy yesterday and immediately declared: "Being here is a dream. My role-model is Paolo Maldini, but it is impossible to repeat what he has done."

Rossoneri coach Carlo Ancelotti declared: "Thiago Silva is the best defender in circulation and for this I think that Milan has done a great deal.

"He's a huge central defender. Last year, he was named Brazil's best player, now he must be rated only in the European context. Surely he's a good investment for the future."
