Former Alessandro Nesta is shocked by the mooted sale of AC Milan pair Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic to PSG.

Milan have already confirmed the departure of Thiago Silva this morning.

“The two players are a great loss, they are the only two players that you cannot find in the market,” Nesta told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

“There is no-one suited to replace them, but perhaps with the fee received they can bring in three or four players, possibly for the future, for a prospective value.”

However, the defender refused to criticise President Silvio Berlusconi for accepting the deal, just weeks on from initially rejected a €47m deal for just Silva.

“Over 26 years Berlusconi has invested his money, with everything he has helped us win some important titles, if this is a bonus then it is deserved.

“As a fan I would thank him because for a quarter of a century they have enjoyed a lot.”
